There is a substantial written element in the assessment emphasizing clear formatting, spelling and grammar within a clear, well-reasoned narrative. Presentation skills and group working are also key to the assessment.

The tutorials will initially consist of exercises for students to complete to gain the necessary skills. After that, the tutorials will be team meetings with the tutor playing the role of the client.
