Critical thinking can be described as the analysis and evaluation of facts to make a judgement. It’s an absolutely vital skill and particularly important to master in order to avoid drawing the wrong conclusions or acting on misinterpretations. Critical thinking is particularly important at work, as it helps teams to identify problems and develop solutions that go beyond the most obvious choices.

In this fascinating and engaging course, participants will be introduced to theory highlighting the importance of being able to think critically. They will also have the opportunity to take part in exercises that give them the chance to practise their new skills.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Accurately understand how to critically appraise information using the RED model of critical thinking
  • Appreciate the requirement for critical thinking in their company and role
  • Have improved their skills in recognising assumptions, evaluating and drawing conclusions

Please note that these outcomes are a guide only and the precise outcomes will vary with the delivery method and duration of the session.
