Using your training
Things to think about:

  • What is your role in the meeting? (Module G and H)
  • How are you going to ask the young people for their ideas? (Module I and E)
  • How are you going to feed back the information? (Module I)
  • The logistics of the meeting: is the proposed date/location convenient for the majority of people? (Module G and H)

To be discussed with either ESL (YL), SL or YLU:

  • What have I done?
  • Why did I do it?
  • What did I want to achieve?
  • What did the section members get from it?
  • What did I learn from it?
  • What would I do differently next time?
  • How do I feel about it now?
