  • This course is for beginners and improvers
  • The course is informal and participative, and will give participants an opportunity to discuss and consider various approaches in a supportive environment. However there is no pressure on anyone to contribute to the discussion or exercises if they feel uncomfortable to do so.

  • Consider the skills that would be involved in a coaching and mentoring approach
