Why do I have to submit a case study or have a virtual assessment?

We require all students to complete a case study submission or virtual assessment to ensure that the treatment is being carried out safely and correctly. It allows you to ask the tutor questions and gain feedback, along with gaining confidence and reassurance. A case study or virtual assessment is usually required for insurance purposes too.
