Assessment guidance


To achieve this unit, learners must achieve the learning outcomes and meet the standards specified by the assessment criteria for the unit.

Additional assessment guidance is provided on the ATHE sample assignment brief. Learners will approach the sample assignment from a theoretical perspective. However actual examples taken from the learners’ personal experience in employment or from research should be used to demonstrate understanding. This is especially true for LO3. Learners will need to apply their knowledge and understanding by analysing the strengths and weaknesses of a chosen organisation’s communication system, recommending how this organisation’s communication system can be improved. Learners will therefore need access to information relating to a suitable organisation’s communication system.
