Sessions 6 to 8:

These are practical sessions. Please organise these sessions either at your own screening programme or you can attend Mile End DR Screening or a mixture of these two screening opportunities. The aim of these sessions is that you have protected time to prepare for the practical exams of your NVQs. By the end of these sessions you might also have your portfolio of images ready for the Practice file of Unit 006 for your NVQ. If that is the case, MEH Reading Centre is prepared to critically evaluate your work in preparation for submission for your NVQ.
