How will I be taught?

The day will include short talks from Nicki interspersed with practical exercises, discussions and real life examples.  

Space is limited to 20 participants. You will be provided with handouts, bibliography and presentation materials.   

Materials will be provided electronically approximately two weeks before the course. In order to reduce our global footprint, hard copies of materials will not be provided on the day. Delegates are welcome to bring the materials on electronic devices; print and bring the materials or take notes and refer to the electronic versions at a later date. Please note if you book less than 14 working days before the course you may have to wait a few days to receive the link to materials. If you book less than 5 working days before the course or on the day, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the link until after the course.

PLEASE NOTE: Education research demonstrates that participants learn most when they focus on the speaker and write their own short personalised notes rather than writing on the materials provided. We therefore encourage participants to use any longer materials provided eg powerpoints as reference materials when home and there is no need to print them all for the day. We encourage participants to think in advance about the key questions you would like answered by the day and for you to tailor your learning, questioning and note taking to address these.
