There are narrated videos for each lesson where there are opportunities for you to pause the video in order to complete the practise tasks before undertaking your main independent task and challenge at the end. The lesson PowerPoint is also available for you to download and go through at your own pace. Don’t forget to check your answers and self-mark your learning at the end!
