“Many consultants are required to read students’ portfolios. The format of these has recently changed, here is a link to explain why and the new format here. The assessment form for portfolios is also available here if needed.

Please may I stress that portfolios should be dealt with before the end of students’ attachment to you. Please spell this out to them when you first meet them, and try to do the evaluation of their efforts with them as a focus for discussion and feedback which will be more beneficial”
