Teaching Methods:

NewLink Wales uses the ‘systems approach’ when developing our courses, ensuring that they are interactive and engaging for everyone regardless of their learning styles. Informal assessments are built into all of our courses through the use of case studies, discussions and questions and answers and our tutors will encourage full active participation from everyone who attends.

Evaluation Tools:

NewLink Wales uses the Results Based Accountability (RBA) method of evaluating our courses. This allows us to find out if participants have increased their knowledge, skills and ability to work with service users from the start of training to the end of the course. In addition to this we have a comprehensive evaluation tool which will ask questions about the whole of the training course. NewLink Wales will then send you details of the RBA statistical information gathered, for each courses booked with us and a copy of the full evaluation forms for your records.
