I quite enjoyed doing the written assignments for the NCFE courses I did and am also looking forward to that part of this course. My problem sometimes seems to be agonising over "have I done enough". My NCFE tutor said I lacked confidence in myself and therefore occasionally put too much in, not that he minded the "too much" just wading through it when I had already covered what had to be said ;o)
So I need to make sure I keep an eye on that :o) Being given a deadline for the first assignment will help me plan ahead. Working part time and with my son spending alternate weekends with his father I hope to be able to dedicate the time needed to complete the course and to the best of my ability. I think my time management is fairly good and I invariably build in contingency.
Need to make sure time is allocated properly, I take lots of notes, record all thought process', keep this blog uptodate, lots of relevant research, note books and websites used for bibliography etc etc. Make sure I am au fait with how to quote and how to reference.
Finally the presentation making sure it is neat and clear and importantly answers the question.
Ok.... basics covered onto the coursework....
