Introduction This policy covers the arrangements for fair assessment for students taking any course at Born to be Beautiful. Students are made aware of the existence of this policy and have open access to it on paper in a folder in the Born to be Beautiful Centre and on the Born to be Beautiful website at: http://www.borntobebeautiful.co.uk. All tutors teaching at Born to be Beautiful are made aware of the contents and purpose of this policy. This policy is reviewed annually and may be revised in response to feedback from students, tutors and organisations. Policy Statement Every student taking a course with Born to be Beautiful Centres will be assessed fairly. That means that:
- Assessment will be a test of what the student knows, what they understand and what they can do.
- For any particular course, every student will be assessed using the same overall set of exercises and criteria.
- Assessments will be standardised across different tutors and classes to ensure that all students have to be judged against the same standards.
Procedure for Appeals by Students If a student feels that they have not been assessed fairly then they should use the Appeals & Complaints Procedure to appeal the assessment decision of their tutor. However, the first step is always to discuss the situation with the tutor concerned.
