    (b) Allow students to take responsibility for the consequences of acting on that autonomy.   

    (c) Provide access to activities that have meaningful outcomes for the student, partner, clients or for others in a practice setting.

    (d) Involve students’ in a variety of differing activities, reflective of the full range of tasks and the diversity of circumstances for the conduct of these.
