Minute Taking

In agreement with participants, training will be offered either virtually or in the classroom according to government Covid-19 guidelines

Minute taking is an integral factor in the success of a meeting – accurate meeting minutes should record what has taken place, decisions made and what actions are required. Minute taking can be daunting but with the right preparation minute taking can be handled with confidence.

You will gain the confidence and skills required to take accurate and concise minutes in suitable language for the audience. You will leave with a better understanding of your role and the confidence to manage the meeting more successfully and professionally.

By the end of the training you will be able to:

• Identify the role and responsibilities of the minute taker
• Understand best practice to prepare for meetings and write effective minutes
• Identify positive strategies for listening and summarising
• Deal with jargon, technical language and grammar professionally
• Identify different methods of minute taking, organising your material and highlighting important points
• Take accurate and concise minutes
• Write and distribute your minutes with confidence

If you are responsible for minute or note taking and wish to enhance your skills then this is the course for you.
