Day 1 of the course sets the scene and gives some time for delegates to prepare for their 10 minute presentation on Day 2. Delegates will be expected to spend some of their own time in the evening developing their course programme and presentation for Day 2.
Day 2 is a busy day, beginning at 9 am. Each delegate will have 10 minutes to make their presentation. They will be asked to carry out a 10 minute reflection on what went well and what they would do differently going forward. At the same time, the remainder of the group will identify the presentation strengths and provide a 'stretch' for the delegate - something that they can work on to enhance their presentation skills even further. This is designed to provide practical opportunities to give and receive feedback and to practice questioning skills. This is a very busy day and delegates are asked to be prompt in arrival and in returning from breaks.
