The aim of the RockTech programme is to teach real skills to the students, not simply to let them have a 'go'. Each skill will contain an assessment element to ensure that the students who complete the course have a high degree of competence and are confident in the skills they have learnt.
The levels are designed to take students through a series of progressive steps of increasing complexity. The accurate completion of the assessment tasks is crucial to the validity of the whole programme.
Ultimately, whatever age or experience level they start at, everyone will be required to have the same level of expertise to pass a specific level.
