NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming

Earlier this year I attended a one day introduction to NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming - held at newbury College.

For anyone involved in education, whether formal (teachers, lecturers, trainers etc.) or voluntary (such as IAM Observers, RoSPA Tutors) it's a fascinating insight into how training can be acheived in ways other than 'chalk and talk'.

That's not to say that NLP is just about training or coaching (although the day included an good example of how coaching can be achieved without actually discussing 'technique'. It's actually far more, and I couldn't do justice to the day in just a few sentences.

Thoroughly recommended!

More details here:

Newbury College is less than two hours drive from a fair chunk of central and southern England. I don't know if other colleges run similar sessions; if not, this would be a reasonable trip and well worth the effort.

Cheers Malcolm - I've got a book on this but struggled a bit getting off the ground - but what little I've picked up is that it seems to be helpful approach to know about.

Even though "the establishment" don't really think much of it, I think it is something to know about.
