Positives the examiner is looking for in this competency.
Providing feedback in response to questions from the pupil.
Seeking appropriate opportunities to provide feedback that reinforces understanding or confirms achievement of learning objectives.
Providing feedback about failure to achieve learning objectives that helps the pupil achieve an understanding of what they need to do to improve.
Providing feedback that the pupil can understand.
Providing consistent feedback that is reinforced by body language.
Feedback in this context is any input you provide to the pupil. Your input should be positive but honest. There is nothing wrong with pointing out a fault to a learner that hasn’t been able to spot it themselves, but this can be made positive by turning it into a learning opportunity.
When coaching a pupil, their self awareness and realistic outlook on their current ability is crucial for continued progress and learning, your feedback and advice can help ensure the pupil is aware enough so they can then come up with solutions and ways forward.
