Skills practice is the most popular learning method that we offer. Skills practice is familiar to many people in the workplace and can also be referred to as ‘role play’. Through this method participants are able to practice the skill set they have learnt in the theory portion of the training. They work with our actor/facilitators, who take on the behavioural characteristics of the person the interaction relates to. The conversation that then unfolds can be paused, reflected on, and fed into by colleagues depending on the learning style of the individual. When working with professional actor/facilitators, participants can focus on their own performance and learn from their mistakes in a safe training environment.
Thankfully, the sophisticated video conferencing tools now available mean we can use Skills Practice as a learning tool just as effectively on virtual platforms as we do in person. Facilities such as virtual breakout rooms mean we can work in both small and large groups during one session, affording participants privacy and variation. We are confident using various different cloud platforms for video and voice conferencing as well as content sharing.
RPfT retains over 300 diverse, trained actor/facilitators around the world, who are experienced in learning complex business briefs as well as improvisation. They can present a suitable challenge through credible and believable verbal and non-verbal responses, act consistently for recruitment centres and deliver forensic and sensitive feedback about behaviours.
