Coursework assignments

Unit (J09) Paraplanning is assessed by coursework assignments rather than a traditional examination. This involves the submission of three written assignments, all of which must be submitted within the 12 month enrolment period in order to achieve a pass. This means that all assignments, plus any re-submissions, must be submitted to the CII during the 12 month period.

'Successful completion' is where you obtain a minimum of 65% of the available marks for each of the three assignments. There is no exam element with this course.

Coursework assessments involve the application of knowledge to work-related questions and require you to explore issues in the workplace relevant to Paraplanning. The aim is that you should thereafter be able to apply this learning in the workplace.
