These sessions can be delivered as stand-alone units or a complete programme can be purchased.

Each learner is unique; therefore information will be required prior to delivery on their learning styles and basic literacy and numeracy skills. A paper based or on line assessment of these skills will be requested.

Each workshop or one to one session will be tailored to meet the learners’ needs. Within each workshop participants will be exposed to a variety of activities that support the learning process. Each learner will be asked at the end of each session to reflect on the learning that has taken place and identify how he or she will put this learning into practice. Each learner will be involved in the evaluation of the session content, delivery and learning experience at the end of each session
