I have just started this course and am already confused!! I don't see myself as being an un-intelligent person, but I am baffled! I take it we just read through the relevant unit and answer the questions? I haven't studied since senior school, so am out of the loop a bit. If anyone can give me guidance on how to get started, I would be extremely grateful! I'm starting to doubt myself already, and thinking I've made a mistake in doing a distance learning course, rather than have the one on one support you get from going to college.

Is anyone else doing this course? I could do with some help !

I have just started on module one and unsure as to how much detail the answers have to be ? Do you have to use references and bibliographies ?

Is the course graded or is it just a simple pass or fail ?

I keep reading other posts by people talking about assignments ? Is an assignment classed as each question on the module ?

Once the module is completed do you have to do the portfolio questions to go with this as well?

If anyone could help i would be really grateful, Thanks, Carrie

no u do not need to reference of bibliography, as all u need to do is read through the unit, and then which ever question it is, write the answer from the book in your own words, and this way, the tutor will see, that you have understood an showed an understanding to what they have asked you.

hope this answers it

Carrie, references or bibliographies are not needed when you do an assignment with Stonebridge, but it's always good when you cite or quote authors when ideas are not yours (to not fall into plagiarism, and on the other hand to show your tutor that you were researching and learning more). :D
If you respond correctly and fully to questions, your tutor will allow you to pass and go to the next module and assignment. If the tutor feels you didn't really respond as you should, or that you haven't learnt well your material, they can ask you to review your module and resubmit your assignment. The more you show you assimilated your course, and responded well, the more you are given praise for your work and can pass the final exam with "distinction".
Assignments students are referring to, are the exams related to every module studied + any final exams (if you're on module 1, there will be an assignment 1 related to that module, that you have to submit to your tutor once you have studied the module). Sometimes, in the module (text material) you can see few questions, but those are not noted, you can do them just with yourself. The questions that are noted are the ones listed under assignments. :-)
I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. We're here to learn from each other and share our experience with other students. Good luck!

thank you so much , so am i right then in saying that you get sent module one , you answer the questions and send it back and then you get sent an assignment relating to module one ? is the assignment just one question. Also, where do the portfolio questions come into it ? I have been sent the list of fifty questions and for module one there are two questions that need to be done ? when are these meant to be submitted ?
Can you tell me how long it should take to answer the questions as i think ive been putting too much detail into it when there is no need!
Thanks again for your reply

I think it looks.like a lot of portfolio work when you get the list of fifty questions but you can make it more manageable by doing each section at the end of each unit and that way its still fresh in your mind frin just studying that unit. You can't hand the portfolio work In till after you've done all assigments but you can keep them to the end ?

please help me with unit 2.
I have been struggling with this unit and I have got myself really confused with question 7- Identify 4 policies/ procedures that are used to protect children and the adults that work with them, and question 8 - Discuss 4 points of good practice to ensure a worker is working safely and protecting themselves and the pupil.
The reason I am confused is that to me they are just the same question but asked in a different way! Am I missing something? Can someone help please?

Hi Gemma. Sometimes, questions can look a bit similar which creates confusion to answer.
I have studied another version of this course, the TA Level3 NCFE. So, I don't have your course material to advise you 100%. But I'd recommend contacting your tutor straight away, email them at tutor@stonebridge.uk.com, and explain your confusion about the question. Your tutor will for sure clarify the questions to you.
I'm studying Japanese Holistic Healing right now, and some questions can be very confusing! Whenever I email my tutor, she responds to me quickly and she even gives me examples to help me understand what to write about!
The best of luck to you.

I called up about the portfolio and a nice guy called James (I think) said just get on with the assignments and get to the portfolio bit when you are ready... The headteacher or who ever is in charge should understand where to help if you approach them with your portfolio questions...

hi just concentrate on the unit questions. Once your placements start just send off the form saying you have started and then you will receive your portfolio info.You can complete the portfolio anytime during the course or just leave it till you finish all the units. good luck x

I am studying for the supporting teaching and learning in schools certificate level 3 . I would like to know how to fill out a reflective account for my portfolio. Do you write an account on a blank sheet of paper? Or is there certain paper work to fill in?

Hi my name is Kelly and I am doing this course, I have started assignment 1 and have just got my placement which starts Monday! It's a long time since I studied and was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the observation forms as I've no instructions on what I'm supposed to observe! Sorry if I sound clueless but I have read and reread everything that came in the pack and nothing tells me. Thanks, Kelly

Hi my name is Sandra and I started this course a month ago, like you I have not studied for many years. I have almost completed assignment 1 and my
placement starts in September. Have you completed the course or are you still doing it. Do you have any useful tips and did you get an answer to your question?

I am doing this corse. I passed all the questions online. Three weeks ago I sent the portfolio activities and no one answered me. I don't know if they received it, or if I have to add something to my work. Did anybody have the same experience. What can I do now? I have spent a lot of time doing that course.

I have just started this course and also can not see the PDF documents. I spoke to the college thismorning,they said they would try and get it sorted but it still doesn't work. I am still a little baffled so far on how to get started, but hope once I get into it, it will come easier.

Hi everyone, I recently signed up to study an online version of the NCFE Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (QCF Level 3) course (with placement). Obviously as it's during the summer holidays I cannot complete my portfolio activities until I return to school in September. I have completed all the questions in Assignment 1 and 2 with the exception of the portfolio work. Can I submit them now or do I have to wait? I'd like to ensure I'm on the right track and that I don't need to redo any thing.
A little help would be really appreciated.
Thanks Michelle
