In every business organisation, every meeting will require a minute taker to make a public record of what has been discussed. Often, employees may be asked at short notice to take minutes, having had little to no training on the task, which can be incredibly daunting. Taking minutes is an important professional skill, which requires the right training and practise. Here at Elite Training in Belfast, we are pleased to offer our Minute Taking Training course, which will provide delegates with clear guidance and techniques to develop their minute taking skills.

Transferable Communications Skills

When important meetings are taking place, the minute taker’s job is to record the most pertinent points made, as well as any discussed actions going forwards. In order to do this accurately, it is vital that minute takers are trained in the right skills to be able to listen and record notes quickly. Available as one of our half or full day business training courses, our Minute Taking Training will give your employees the confidence needed to take concise, accurate notes and draft a professional set of minutes. The skills gained in this course are also transferable in a whole range of other communication-based work situations.

Personalised Development Plan

Our Minute Taking Training begins with the opportunity to complete a self-assessment baseline, to assess delegates existing skills, before a personalised development plan can be prepared. Throughout the day, our development experts will provide training on both minute taking theory and practise, covering everything from agendas and discussion summaries to appropriate writing styles, and the structure & layout of minutes. A range of practical minute taking exercises will also be provided to you, in order to practise your new skills.

Book your Course

Upon completion of our Minute Taking Course, our delegates should have a complete understanding of the role of a minute taker, and be ready to apply their new skills in the workplace.
