7 Minute Briefings

The SSAB has produced a number of 'seven minute briefings' which can be used to deliver a short briefing to staff regarding a particular subject.

Some of the briefings are used to summarise learning from Safeguarding Adult or similar reviews and others around a particular subject. 

Seven minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI. It is based on research, which suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span to concentrate and learn. Learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.

If you have suggestions for future briefings you would find helpful, please email your suggestions to the SSAB Training and Development Officer - 

The briefings can be downloaded below.
