The Rapport Exercise Bands are best printed on two different coloured papers for easy identification. Form participants into pairs and had one of each band type (A+B) asking them not to share what is written on them. Run the exercise for about 5 minutes, so rapport is well established. Then sit down, or other action. Again let them disengage for about 5 minute or until the room is suitable uncomfortable. If there is time allow them to re-establish rapport, but this is not essential.

A moderator group?

I spent lunchtime talking about PC3 to a small group of representatives from the University’s PDP Network – a group of academics from across the institution who have a special interest in PDP, employability and enterprise. It was a very profitable discussion: they are very interested in and supportive of the aims and approach we are taking; they pointed out some potential stumbling blocks such as students not accepting “incomers” to their modules who may not be taking it in the same way as them. Certainly the options available through PC3 will need to be carefully negotiated to ensure neither PC3 programme students nor students on more traditional curriculum pathways are disadvantaged.

One outcome of the meeting is that the PDP Network have agreed to be a “sounding board” for us, allowing us to get grass roots staff outside of the user group course teams to moderate what we are doing and assess how it would work elsewhere in the institution. This should help a lot with the ongoing embedding and sustainability of PC3.

Presenting the PC3 framwork

For the staff development festival and the launch of the PC3 project we devised a graphical representation of the main elements of the PC3 framework.

For later presentations we rearranged it slightly to put coaching at it’s heart:
