I am still working on assignment 8, but I am almost at the end and I would love to know what's in the final.

By the way good luck Francesca!

Hi sk! How are you getting on? I'm only on Assignment 2 but am also wanting to speed things up - thought I might give myself a bit of personal motivation and see if I can catch you up!

I applied for a job at a two local schools and they offered me an interview out of about 60 people & I had this qualification that you're all studying. I went to one of the interviews and they weren't bothered what qualification board it was as long as it was level 3 , they then rang the day after and offered me a different job - SEN TA rather than the original TA job i applied for. So, i don't think a lot of schools mind what it is to be honest.

Don't feel disheartened Francesca, that seems a bit daft as an NCFE Level 3 is the same level just a different company, what it comes down to is being a Level 3 Teaching Assistant as well as having GCSE's or A level's. It's down to the individual person :) I've just passed assignment 8 so curious about the final as coming close to it.

I've heard the final is to describe+explain all you've learned on the course and how you'd put it to practice. I'm currently on assignment 3 and really enjoying it :)

Yep, I have just got a distinction in level 3. Really enjoyed the whole course. Did assignment 9 and the final together and got my result the next day.

I am just embarking on the Final. Not too sure how to tackle it without writing about 50 pages!! Any suggestions?

Don't write 50 pages, just summerise your experience. They are looking for your personal experience here or how you have been affected. I kept mine simple so and I got a distinction. You need to cover the points you've been asked for, not write an essay!

Took me a while to get my head around it but in the end it was quite straight forward. I literally summarised all the areas covered by the course, sometimes just in a few words to cover a whole section. Then for question 2 I came up with a set of little scenarios that could happen over the course of a few days in school that took in all of the various areas of the course.

Just got result - Passed with Distinction - Soooo happy!!

Does the usual word limit apply to this? I've started writing my rough version up and thought oh I'm near the word limit.

if you do it online you can print them all off and work through them as you like. You just have to submit them in the right order. I've done 1 a week so far and now onto number 9. Can't wait to complete it!

Has anyone gotten their results back yet from the final and if so how is it marked? is it a percentage? Or just a pass or fail?

I got my result in the form of a distinction which is equivalent to an A. From my experience of Diplomas marks can be Distinction which is an A, Merit = B, Pass = C and fail.
