Example text

It is necessary to consider the needs of the participants and to anticipate situations that may arise during the training sessions (this will be discussed further in Chapters 6 and 7). Endings The pool of trainers must also reach some consensus about how they are going to wind down the group at the end of the course and how evaluations are going to be undertaken (which will be addressed in Chapter 8). If the course is only half a day, time will probably be very tight and trainers may prefer to have a quick ending so that most of the precious time can be used to deliver the content of the course.

I have come across many staff who have said they feel it is ‘rude’ to leave the room whilst the training is taking place and consequently have sat cross-legged until the break. This is not helpful as people become distracted; it is better that they get up and go when they have to! This is usually more of a problem during the afternoon, after numerous drinks have been consumed! Ground rule 6: no mobile phones This is a recent addition to my list of ground rules. During the past two years my training has been frequently interrupted by mobile phones ringing at the most inopportune times.

Number of rooms Another decision to be made before the course takes place concerns the number of rooms needed. If group work is to take place it may be necessary to have access to smaller break-off rooms. These rooms need to be close by; valuable time is often wasted if participants have to walk a distance to and from these rooms. When training on adult abuse, some participants may become distressed – an issue that will be addressed below and in Chapter 6. Therefore, it is important to have a room available where a participant can go if they need to take a break from the course.
