Learning Agreement: FRESH

With such a large amount of content to cover within the time we have this Learning Agreement is meant to enable a ‘safe learning environment’ for the duration of the session. It allows us all to ‘safely’ discuss the situations that may arise and ensure that we do what we need to do when the session has ended. It is especially important to understand the ‘safe’ element of the agreement which links to ‘confidentiality’ and our responsibilities whilst at work under policy, procedure and employment legislation.
