CAS Programme Evaluation
A main aspect of the CAS Programme is for students to become independent and responsible, to plan and initiate their own activities, and to keep records of the process which they go through. The CAS students use reflection at all stages of their activities: setting goals and objectives at the beginning of an activity, reviewing these goals and their progress during the activity and a final summative reflection at the end of the activity. Throughout the two years that students are engaged on their CAS Programme they must demonstrate weekly commitment to their activities and reflection.
