Pony Club Workshop

Sunday, December 3rd 2017 at 4:30pm Ruthin LL15 1QA

Test assessing is not easy at the best of times, and giving feedback to an unsuccessful candidate is always tricky.  This is a 2.5 hour workshop designed to help Assessors and Coaches

at all Levels

to use questioning skills to help get the best out of the candidate during a test day, and to give the results and good feedback whatever the actual results at the end of the day.

Essential for B Standard coaches/Assessors.

Workshop members will discover what helps and what doesn’t, and will be encouraged to reflect on their own practice.
