The process employed during this programme is a highly interactive one in which the presenter, having introduced the concepts, facilitates the group in addressing and resolving the various issues which arise. The learning process takes account of and builds on the knowledge and experience of participants.
The focus throughout is on practicality with participants establishing themselves in team structures during the course and thus gaining real hands on experience of how the team structure operates, the opportunities which arise and associated the challenges and risks.
