Need to be written in the FUTURE tense describing what they WILL do
Need to link to correct learning outcomes (max 3-4 per experience)
They need to make sense
Written reflections have to be documented for all experiences lasting over 1 month (min of 2 - one focusing on what they learned, another at the end describing how the LOs were met (subheadings can be used for each LO - these questions can help https://cas.ecolint.ch/reflections/how-to-improve-cas-reflections
Need to be written in the PAST tense describing thoughts and feelings not description
Evidence is needed for every experience. This has to SHOW you that they have done what they have described they were going to (photos, vids, emails blogs etc)
At least 3 are required plus one for their project
It should be at least a month long and collaborative
A CAS 5 stages form needs to be completed and uploaded as evidence for LO3 https://cas.ecolint.ch/the-cas-project/the-cas-project-form
A CAS project should be thought of like the EE of CAS - it needs to have enough evidence and reflections in there to be worthy of work taking a month of your time
A minimum of 2 written reflections are needed - one on their role and one whether the LOs have been achieved. These should be written at length. However two is an ABSOLUTE minimum.
The dates of your experiences need to be correct. Their timeline needs to show AT LEAST 1C, 1A, 1S as being a month long.
They need to have AT LEAST 9 experiences (3C, 3A, 3S) PLUS their CAS project in total
They need to have reflections and evidence for each LO. Each of the bars should be GREEN not ORANGE
3 need to be recorded.
Interview 3 should be completed after their portfolio is done. This should not be left to the last minute
