Practical skills development was used extensively by most partners, at all levels in the IVOLVE project, although there were some indications that increasing its use, does not necessarily improve the chance of objective achievement. However teachers certainly highlighted the value of this technique for developing practical skills, for illustrating and applying theory. During the trainers’ exchange, good practice was identified in the UK in a workshop, where there was interaction between teachers, facilitators and students. In Sweden excellent equipment was identified as part of good practice, whereas in Catalonia a well prepared and structured workshop for practising was identified as particularly good.
