Learners will be assessed using two methodologies. They will be required to write a reflective journal covering each of the masterclasses in which they will be required to articulate the key learning/development points, which may be supported by evidence from their own wider readings. A selection of the reflective journals will also contain a requirement to articulate how the learning/development points have been, or will be, implemented in their roles.  

Upon completion of the reflective journals, the candidates will be required to attend a live assessment, scheduled for 2 hours, during which they will be asked to articulate examples of how they have dealt with (or would deal with) situations requiring application of the key learning principles, including leadership, judgement, strategic thinking, problem solving and technical knowledge.
