Final Practical Observations Dates & Guidance

At the top of the page you will find the final practical observation sheet. This will show you what is required for the practical assessment. Please remember that you will need to explain a number of things as well as perform the movements.

On the final practical observation day, we suggest that you perform the 6 Form movements once, giving appropriate teaching points, and then demo the movements again, without the teaching points. We find that nerves often get the better of candidates during their practical assessment, so this provides you with 2 opportunities to show good, flowing movements.

Assessments can be carried out either by attendance at a venue in Somerset, via video recording or a Skype session. Please contact your tutor if you wish to talk over the options available. 

 Below you will find dates that have been arranged for final observations. 

 Please allow an hour for each assessment to take place.  A maximum number of 6 candidates can be booked in for each assessment. 

You will need to have completed the assignments at least 2 weeks before your final observation. This allows time for the tutor to mark your work and then forward it to the Internal verifier. If you cannot make this deadline you are advised to change your final observation date.
