Bridges to Learning Minute Taking

Ref: C2524884

Many people are expected to take notes and minutes as part of their jobs but few people have had any professional training in these tasks. The workshop actively facilitates students to gain an understanding of how to take good meeting notes and minutes. People who have been taking minutes and notes will have the chance to assess how well they are doing while people who are new to the subject can learn at their own pace. The workshop gives students a thorough grounding in the difference between notes and minutes and provides them with a range of examples and templates to improve their professional knowledge. The course also gives people the opportunity to consider key problems and how to overcome them.
