Each participant must deliver a 10 or 15 minute training session, and take a multiple choice quiz on day two. Each session must be observed by the tutor. The group should agree whether to deliver sessions of 10 or 15 minutes. Where a cohort is large, a centre may use its discretion to limit the sessions to 10 minutes in order to ensure the course can be completed in the time available. Both of these assessments are marked as either pass or fail.
