Four training sessions signed, sealed and delivered!
Emma, Young Trainee, tells us about delivering training and overcoming nerves…
It’s me Emma. Long time no see. I would like to share with you my experience of delivering 4 school council training sessions over a two week period. I was quite nervous about doing this as this was my first time delivering several training sessions to classes of 30 students from primary schools.
“It was a bit scary having a classroom full of students staring at you and you yourself being the centre of attention”
But once I got started I even forgot that I was in charge of both delivering the session and ensuring that the session ran smoothly with the help of my other colleagues.
I got to hear some very good ideas that would benefit everyone in the school and quite a few silly ideas where chocolate fountain seemed to be the most repetitive; particularly from the younger years! I also kept a lookout for any repetitive ideas that the students shared with their peers.
From one school; there was a repetitive issue of the school giving out dirty cups at break and lunch times so I hope that the students who particularly feel passionate about this issue would band together and get the headteacher to agree in helping to solve this ongoing issue. I look forward to more school council training and hearing great ideas!
