Our popular Minute Taking skills course provides you with practical guidance on the wider process of administering effective meetings, as well as providing the opportunity to develop skills and confidence in taking accurate and concise minutes.

About Minute Taking Skills

The design of this Minute Taking course reflects that minute takers can do more than provide a concise record of the meetings they attend. It provides delegates with practical guidance on the wider process of administering effective meetings, as well as providing the opportunity to develop skills and confidence in taking accurate and concise minutes. Delegates will consider the full cycle of events leading up to meetings and how best to prepare for them. The skills of listening, note taking and minute writing will be practiced.

Delivery Method

The course will be delivered through a variety of participative training methods designed to meet the objectives. This provides you with skills development whilst maintaining your interest and motivation. Methods include group discussion and tutor input, practical exercises and mini-case studies conducted individually, in pairs and in groups where appropriate. The course concludes with an action plan detailing how you will apply what you’ve learnt on return to the workplace and to whom you can turn for further coaching and support.

Courseware: The course is reinforced by handouts covering all the main objectives and exercises during the day. These handouts provide a valuable aide-memoire to support learning on return to the workplace.
