The training will provide participants with essential storytelling skills. Training will include research work as well as presentation skills required to tell stories to an audience. Some preparation work will also be required outside of contact (class) time. Candidates will be required to deliver a short oral storytelling performance and collate a small portfolio of evidence for their final assessment. A laptop / computer with internet access will be essential to take part in the course.
