And examine tools and techniques with gathering immediate feedback from young people. We've also encouraged you to try out some new techniques in your volunteering activities. We've introduced the type of questions and the approach you could take to gather feedback from educators. We've also looked at how to relate your experience to giving and receiving feedback from the workplace. And to build on this and use when gathering feedback from young people and educators.
