    Throughout the course you will be assessed by a combination of short assignments, case studies, written questions and practical assessments of your work; and will compile a portfolio of evidence including photographs of your work. 


    It is expected that you will have purchased or own an electrolysis machine so that you can practise throughout your case studies after the course and continue with your practise at home - your tutor will discuss this with you at the start of your course.
