Applicants do not need any special entry qualifications. Applicants usually complete a course taster as part of their application, so that they can experience the course and find out first hand what Harington has to offer, whilst the staff team look at what skills the applicant already has and what they would need to work on if they were to join a course at Harington.
Learners build up a portfolio of work as the course progresses, which will have lots of evidence of their work. It might have photographs of their work, statements from people who have seen them working describing what they saw, checklists from qualified staff describing what happened when the learner showed them how to do a task and other sorts of evidence.
The course is assessed by the examiner looking at the portfolio, rather than by a formal exam.
