How users/participants can evaluate success

How we evaluate the training:
•    Participants evaluate the training based upon the relevance to professional needs, the quality of the tuition, the quality of the training material, and the organisation, management and accommodation.
•    Delegates identify further training requirements
•    Follow up questionnaires are sent to delegates asking for feedback over time.
•    A track record is maintained for each course and for each tutor. Feedback and evaluation is shared with tutors in order to identify and inform development.
