Hi, I'm just registering to join a preparation/assessment course in November but have a few questions please. Firstly, because of Covid, the 3 days is going to be split into 6 x 2 hour online sessions: 2 one week, 2 the following week and then 2 2 weeks later. Can someone explain to me what is required to gain the status please? From what I've read, it looks like a portfolio needs to be completed for each of the standards - I guess this is explained in full over the sessions but... is it difficult to put together the portfolio? How long between the sessions to when the assessor comes in to the school? Does it take many hours say, per week, to put together the portfolio? Also, I've read that with the preparation days, tasks need to be complete - are there many to complete? Sorry for all of the questions, I'm just trying to gather as much information as possible! Any advice appreciated! Thank you.
