There are many styles of questions you can ask and many people don’t realise just how to structure a question to get the type of response they are looking for. Asking better questions gets you better answers and helps with your personal and professional development.

This module will help you give constructive feedback to the people you work with and those supporting you to find the right career and help you take on board the feedback of others so that you can develop professionally.
