Students will complete a series of written, spoken and practical assignments throughout the year. The assignments are not designed purely to check student’s levels of academic knowledge. Each one is intended to help students reflect back on their learning in the classroom, but also to encourage them to study further and explain and illustrate how the content of the course is affecting their life and leadership practically.
