When I signed up for my traineeship, I was given a pile of booklets. I can't find all of them now. Is it possible to access them online or do I need to borrow them from my GL or try and find them in the house.

does anyone know when the new assessment kits come out? I'm debating whether or not to start a new unit or not with the 2015 kits

They usually come out January/February.
You can use old assessment kits up until February if already started before the end of the year is my understanding

the kits generally dont change too much. sometimes part of a question will change. I would keep working on stuff and just chuck it all into the new kit if it comes out while you are working on it. You may end up waiting for a kit that doesnt come out until march and therefore waste a few weeks!

I've been wondering the same thing! Is it usually the beginning or end of Feb that they change?

I've once again fallen off the training wagon, but in saying that we do have a BBQ coming up which I can lead a team and tick that task off.

I don't know exactly when the change over happens, but there is quite a bit of leeway. I second Mooki, you should just start and hope the changes aren't that big. Chances are if you start now you'll be finished before the cut off which is usually at least a month after the new ones come out. The aim is to allow you to complete anything you have already started when the new kits come out.

My suggestion is not to stop if you are on a roll, because waiting can mean stopping and not starting again.

Just saw a message about this. You'll have until the end of February for any units from 2015 that you have started to be assessed.

Hi, I'm back on the training band wagon - any one here? I'm working on the short answers to the breastfeeding friendly environments.
