in terms of two of the following; funding, organisation and
quality. Which system is preferable?

HOW SHOULD YOU COMPLETE YOUR PORTFOLIO?

evidence I, p. 3). This will help you reflect on your strengths and areas to
work on during the course.
2. Complete the summarising task in your portfolios (Section 1: Portfolio

own words.

Introduction

(e.g. which system is more effective?)
