Assignments are used by colleges and training centres to check your progress on your course and provide feedback on how well you're doing. Starting an assignment, especially if you have never done one before, can be daunting and it can be easy to be feel overwhelmed. One way to help avoid this is to break down your assignment into manageable steps.
These pages outline the steps involved in planning and writing your assignment.
