Pod Week 1 – Wellington
December 4 - December 8| 2875
This training ensures professional standards of quality for providing 5-day Davis programs are fully developed and understood. Students work in groups of 3 (pods) under the supervision of a Davis Specialist, in one of the following roles for a full week:
- Providing a 5-day Davis Program.
- Receiving a 5-day Program.
- Observing a Program.
The roles are not done in a specific order, e.g., some students may provide a program during their first Pod Week, while others may provide a program in their third Pod Week. The Pod Weeks are scheduled by availability of roles: each group of three must have a provider, a client, and an observer. Therefore scheduling is subject to forming groups of three students who all have complimentary roles. The observing and providing roles may need to be repeated to improve skills. Includes individual supervisor consultations, Client Kit in the “receive program” Pod Week, and handbook of forms required for providing Davis programs. Group discussions and short lectures are led by a Specialist are held throughout the Pod Weeks. These further prepare a student for providing Davis programs in a professional, business setting.
