In this short clip, Flux Learning Ltd showcases the work undertaken, the pedagogy and methodology underpinning the development and delivery of the PROTECT Study online learning course.

Using proficiency based progression and the metrics (steps, errors and critical errors ) for Health Huddle training provides clarity of approach and highlights the importance of feedback and deliberate practice rather than repeated practice.
