6 to go… I got my first pass letter yesterday for the CDS portion of the ARE. Needless to say, that was an exhilarating moment to open the envelope and see that my efforts were not in vain. Now on to the next section - Programming, Planning, Practice. I have a feeling these things will get progressively more difficult just because things will start to run together. BUT at least now, I’ve got the experience of one under my belt - combined with the confidence from passing.
