Introduction
This is your journal. In it you will find questions to allow you to reflect on what
you have learnt, along with plenty of space for you to make your own notes.

It is divided into sections so that you can make entries on a structured basis
relevant to the differing aspects of the course.

The journal is not a test or examination. It is a study aid that allows you to write
down what the course means to you and what you are learning from it.

It will form part of your evidence that you have achieved the objectives of the
course.

If you are working towards a recognised qualification you can use this journal to
record evidence of your work and experience.

Complete the relevant sections of this journal as soon as possible after your
learning experience as this will allow your information to be as accurate as
possible.
