Planning a Training Session

Each year the education data from the Programme Director's Planning and Evaluation Forms (PDPEF) will be analysed and may result in a number of changes or actions with a view to improve our programmes. For 2018, see Improving Educational Quality in Programmes – Trainer Notes 2018. (For previous versions, see Trainer Notes for 20142015, 2016, and 2017)
