  6. To provide a practical demonstration of the method through a live CCTV training demonstration by one of the presenters with a person with a learning disability on a practical task;

  7. Participants will work one-on-one with a person with a learning disability on the model task, which is filmed to provide practical experience of the training techniques;

  8. To record the trainee’s learning curves during the practical session and to provide feedback on the participant’s training;

  9. To understand a range of alternative methods of task presentation available to the trainer according to the trainee’s needs and safety concerns;
