Practice Session 2: Organisation-specific material (20 mins): The purpose is to consolidate existing competencies and improve identified developmental areas.

Practice Session 3: Generic Leadership Programme (30 mins): The best test of facilitation skills is having to facilitate unfamiliar content - this session brings together all that has been covered and identifies areas for ongoing enhancement.
