Fun, friendship and learning

I recently attended a workshop given by Nigel Heritage called 'Designing an Effective Induction for Staff Who Do Activities.' This did exactly what it said on the tin and we now have some great practical ideas for making our induction procedure more useful for activity staff. Activities are, after all, a tremendously important part of the mix of fun, friendship and learning that we try to provide each summer. This workshop was just one of several that Sarah and I have attended over the past year, all aiming to maintain and improve the quality of our courses. Just one of the benefits of membership of Young Learners English UK. By Chris Etchells
