Brett's tips for success

While it's essential to have a well-developed written plan for a teaching session, remember that success will also depend on how well you implement it!

In an interactive session, the facilitator has to 'think on their feet' to respond to what learners say and do. At times you will need to refocus learners and guide them back onto the topic without just giving them the answers.

Also, learners are complex human beings - at times we will need to manage their behaviour :-)
