Will there be any preparation work before the workshop?

There will be some pre‐workshop reading. This will be distributed two weeks in advance of the workshop There will also be an assignment to undertake between day 1 and day 2. You should ensure that you set aside one hour for this.

Will there be an assessment?

The format of the workshop will provide ample opportunity for you to assess your knowledge and judgement informally. There is also the option to book a formal post‐workshop benchmarking assessment, with a personal written report. The open-book assessment is sat on-line, at a time of your choosing. It takes 2‐4 hours to complete but does not have to be done at one sitting as it is open available to you for a 5‐day period. There is a follow‐up 45 minute phone call to discuss your answers and approach. The whole process is designed to be developmental and non‐threatening; most participants say they quite enjoyed it!
The formal assessment may be booked either at the time of booking the workshop, or after the workshop.
