I have been working with learners in small focus groups to concentrate on specific skills and EHCp outcomes such as speaking and listening. I put three together, one needed to work on her listening skills and not take over too much, one needed to develop her ability to be more assertive and initiate conversation and another needed to work with people less familiar to them. The small group played a board game, during which, I facilitated the change of leadership. As a result, the first learner experienced what it was like to be led, developing more self-awareness. The second initiated conversation and went on to interact more with others in the room, something they hadn't done in this way before. The third developed more confidence by working with people less familiar to them. All were able to reflect on the essential skills built in speaking, listening and teamwork skills.
