to enable the integration of elements of the Standard within a coherently planned work based project;
to facilitate self evaluation and the accumulation of final evidence against the Standard.

|The assessment relates to the project undertaken within this unit
A 15000 word report will be submitted, outlining the rationale for the project, its theoretical underpinnings, its planning, implementation, evaluation, final outcomes and reflections on the project and the process of professional development during the project.
Participants are also required to submit to the GTCS a reflective summary report of 1000 - 1500 words, that demonstrates critical reflection on the professional development gained through CT study. This needs to be explicitly linked to all aspects of the CT standard. The supervisor will offer formative assessment on the summary report. This does not form part of the formal assessment of the Final Project.
