Colleagues within the department strive to work collaboratively, ensuring that a wide range of resources are available centrally to both help manage workload and ensure consistency for students. Staff have successfully implemented strategies to encourage students to be independent learners with a strong emphasis on self and peer assessment, which is monitored by members of the department.
