Materials will include exercises and questions which will deepen the delegate’s knowledge of MSP and allow the delegate to use their MSP knowledge to explore the case study by drawing on their own experience. The outputs from these exercises will be used in the classroom event. Delegates will be expected to have completed at least 10 hours pre-course work for this event.
