Assessment on the course is continuous and integrated, taking into account teaching skills and written assignments, with each assessed component contributing to the overall grade. Candidates are given verbal and written feedback on their teaching and written feedback on assignments. Each candidate has at least two tutorials during the course at which they discuss their progress. All tutors working on the course discuss each candidate’s final grade. These grades are provisional until they have been confirmed by both the Cambridge assessor (who visits the course for one or two days) and by Cambridge ESOL.
