Im starting assignment 3 & I'm finding some things pretty hard. Having to provide evidence for each activity on each assignment is proving to be difficult.

How are you finding the course? Are you doing online based?

Hi Kayleigh
I've just finished the first unit 'Healthy Eating' and uploaded everything they ask in the upload box but I can't submit my assignment, the pearl system says answer all the questions , it's annoying and headache after all I've gone through with this unit. In the work placement I'm not allowed to take even the picture of my activity at all, nothing except confirmation from my supervisor in writing, I don't know if this is the reason why I can't submit it. Anyone any ideas???

Hi Florie,

Im not 100% sure why your having trouble submitting your first assignment. Is there a box popping up with a reason as to why your assignment cant be submitted??

Im on assignment 3 & I had a problem with submitting assignment 2 but then realised there were some multiple choice questions that I had to answer first as part of the assignment.

I don't remember this happening on the first assignment to be honest. x

yes i'm doing it online. To be honest, like you i have been out of education for ages so it's a bit dificult. I found the coursework ok but the assignment didn't really bear much relevance to the coursework. I've bought the book to go along with it now which is helping but i haven't been able to start my placement yet (starting after hols) so i have no idea how gathering evidence etc is going to work out.

Hi Tanith

Yeah my thoughts are the same as yours on the whole assignment thing, I'm struggling as I don't seem to know how to answer most of the question even though I understand the coursework. I will invest in a book next week I think as I think it will be more useful than just searching online for help & ideas with certain.

How far into the course are you? x

I've just finished the first online unit coursework and am working on my 1st assessment. I haven't had a proper look at the book yet as i was busy over Christmas but from what i can see, i think it will prove invaluable. Where are you up to in the coursework?

Hi Gemma,

This is my main issue too, im on assignment 3 & have struggled with the previous two so im not sure how im going to cope with the rest of them. I used the internet & a lot of the coursework for my answers as I don't yet have a book to refer to.

I am seriously wondering if I have made a mistake taking this course on. I want to succeed & pass but ive already had a lot of problems with my last 2 assignments where I had them graded as a refer purely down to the fact that I hadn't put enough information or detail into my answers. Its hard when you really want something but you can see just how hard it is. x

Hi ladies not sure if this link helps but these are the books that ive been looking into buying. Im not sure how many I should buy but im pulling more towards the work based one as this may help within a setting.

Let me know if this is any use to you. They are also on amazon & ebay too x

Hi Ladies I am on assignment 2.5. I found it difficult to answer the questions at first. Its easier when you have a placement. You need to refer to your setting in most of the questions and what they do. The book I have is the EYE for the work based learner. I was told to refer to the book only for research. Your tutor can email you a list of required evidence so you know what to send off with your assignments. I think I am a little in front of you so let me know if you are stuck. Try not to be too disheartened if your assignment comes back, its probably something small you need to add x x

hiya. i have also very recently started this course and am struggling severely with it. as has been mentioned, i understand the reaaing parts, its just struggling to put it into words. i made a mistake doing it online and think paper based with books would have been more helpful. i have no idea how to do the planned activity :/
