Activity 2.3 Learning from experience

Timing: Time: 10–15 minutes

This can be either a reflection or a discussion activity. Having listened to Lesley talk about what she has learned from her caring experience, learners can discuss the following:

  • Was some of Lesley’s learning unexpected?
  • Did she learn from difficult times as well as good ones?
  • Did Lesley learn things while caring that may be useful in studying and employment?

You can prompt the discussion, picking up on some key words from Lesley’s story, such as: resilient, managing her time, budgeting, managing stress, capable of learning, coping with difficult situations, communication skills.
