hi guys. hope you are getting on well. I'm on assignment 7 and am still wondering: how do we show we have completed the practical elements in each lesson when we submit it if we dont send evidence until the end of the course?
does anyone have any info or feedback on the practical questions and what evidence did you send?
thanks everyone and good luck

I know this is an old post by now, but in case anybody has a similar question, here's my penny's worth:

Every assignment/Unit in my STL Level 3 course that has a practical element (work based assessment criteria and witness testimonies that need to be signed off), also have a separate theory part that is completed by the student, at home.

I am doing my course via distance learning. When I have written up my theory bit on any unit, I submit it - sometimes with my witness testimony attached (done either by me or my class teacher) or sometimes not.

My online tutor marks everything, no matter what order it arrives in. So, currently my units 5 and 6 theory parts have been signed off, for example, but as my class teacher (in my school placement) still has not completed her write-up of my practical witness testimonies, those have not yet been signed off.

Note: if you are doing a college-based course, it will either be your college tutor or some other college based assessor who will come out and observe you, usually on several occasions, and will sign you off on the practical parts of several units.

Because I only have an online tutor, it falls to me to write up my own reflective accounts and witness testimonies (my class teacher is doing half of them, me the other half), and for her to sign me off as my witness, in lieu of a tutor coming out to observe me.

I hope that makes some sort of sense!
