Module 2: Assignments

This Assignment builds on the two reflection questions (above), and provides the opportunity for you to record in detail the ideas you (perhaps with others) have developed about the Productive Demonstration Site you plan to work on with your identified group.  It asks you to identify the (potential) members of the group, and their particular roles and responsibilities in the process. It also asks you to describe your own roles and responsibilities in relation to the development and implementation on of a plan for the site, and how you can use this planning process and the Productive Demonstration Site itself in your curriculum, your training programme or to share with other farmers. Downloadable copies of Assignment 2 and the Assessment Criteria of Assignment 2 is available by clicking on the “Download Assignment 2” and “Download Assessment Criteria” buttons below.

All participants wishing to achieve a Rhodes certificate (at either NQF Level 6 or Level 5) must successfully complete this Assignment.
