Diploma qualification units can be knowledge or skills based. Each different unit within the qualification has specific requirements and will have different evidence to demonstrate your ability to meet the requirements of the unit. Your coach will plan the most appropriate types of evidence with you. If you identify your own that is even better as it will clearly show your coach that you have a good understanding of the requirements and will have your qualification achieved much faster.
