This course is highly participative and will have a mix of tutor input and experiential learning. Participants will have opportunities to be involved in reflective practice which can be used for CPD purposes - i.e. SVQ, HNC, PRTL, CLPLO and post-grad. This course will count as 12 hours CPD time. Course evaluation will be undertaken with the use of pre and post-course questionnaires.
