LEVEL 3 Early Years Educator Advice please

Hi,

I'm running well behind on assignments now (to the point that my required hours is completed!) but I have a few questions as I can't seem to get hold of my Tutor if anyone can help please?

1)On my assignment sheet it says "refer" but in the comments it says if I hadn't passed the tutor would ask me to re-submit but the only comments were about continuing as I was for a good course. What does refer mean?
2)Previously we didn't submit our evidence alongside the assignment, I know we now have to do so, do I have to just scan it and send it now I've submitted my newest assignment and keep the paper copies of the others for when the course ends?
3)With regards to my time sheets etc, do I hold them till the end or can I scan and send them now to submit them? And it says "activities" but a lot of activities are now going to be once my hours requirement is done... Any suggestions on that please?

Think those are all my questions,

Sorry in advance for being stupid!

Thanks

Sarah

Hi Sarah
I'm currently on this course too x
Refer means to resubmit the assignment with updated "fail" questions. What I do is send the whole assignment with my updated questions and where is says resubmission? I click yes.

The evidence for each assignment I do I scan and send via email to tutor@stonebridge.co.uk and mark F.A.O Amanda Vidler. The paper copies are part of your portfolio and should be kept .

Your time sheets are scanned and sent at the End of your course along with your mentor final statement and placement agreement .

Hope this helps

Brilliant,

Thank you! So if an assignment says "refer" she means to resubmit! I've submitted 3 assignments since then, will they not be marked until this one has been resubmitted??

All I could find was that they have to be submitted in order?

Thanks xx

Glad to find out other people have been struggling with this course. I thought I was being stupid. I have assignment 12 in this week but had not realised it would not get marked until I resubmit my last one. It was just luck that I manage to resubmit before the next due date before.

Thanks for the heads up, Lorna

I'm beyond struggling. I feel so totally unsupported with this course, the contact is slim to none and even when I asked for a tutor to email or contact me and left messages with tutor support, nothing.

Really disheartened tbh xx

I understand completely. I started this course Nov 2014 and am about 6 assignments behind. I only found this community today and was reading other posts to find that there is also a facebook page for students on this course. I joined straight away. Have you tried it?

I have, it's been very helpful! I do still feel like the support should also come from the college and it genuinely hasn't. It's really got me down when I hoped this would be a positive experience

hi
I started this course last year and am finding it so hard to complete the session sheets, it would be helpful to have an example of how to fill it out. I'm stuck generally as when I started this course all evidence was to be handed in at the end so I'm half way through without any session sheets filled in. how are you meant to do this? content and summary of activity ( a brief description of the activity done) the next page however what then? what are you meant to write ? do you pick a section eg physical health and wellbeing, emotional wellbeing etc?
help I'm stuck and I want to finish this

Hi Dee, You need to have a section record linked to every activity for the course. On the second page, you need to indicate which areas your activity covers: fill in as many boxes as you can and use your theme pages in the textbook to see which units you can evidence. The last page is the most important as you need to get each session record signed by your mentor at your placement or workplace. There is lots of help on facebook. Do a search for the course title and join us. I hope that helps, Lorna
