Assessment is mostly internal through assignments, presentations and practical's. Two units are assessed through external online exams. Students gain a grade for each unit and a final qualification grade is awarded.

Where all crtiteria are met, Level 2 students will have the opportunity to progress to a Level 3 course or may choose to enter the leisure industry where in many cases they will have access to further training.
