Teaching about teaching

Out to help a friend today. Scott has a teaching climbing assessment coming up for his MIA and wanted some feedback on how he structured his day.
Ali and Susie had volunteered to be mock students and we went to Polldubh despite a showery day. If you know which routes to pick there are climbs that will dry almost as soon as the rain stops- especially if there is a breeze. We were lacking that wind today so it was a little midgey but Scott took the team up 3 pitches of the Gutter, Styx Buttress Right Wall in 2 pitches and a pitch of Three Pines in the improving weather with an abseil from each route.
We focussed on creating a structure to his day and drip feeding and reinforcing key learning points in bite sized chunks.
