        Active listeningActive listening

        Active listening means listening to what learners think and feel. Good listeners do have things to say, but they also know when to stay quiet and leave the way clear for learners to talk.

        Active listening increases the value of progress reviews.

        • You get to know learners better.
        • Learners find out things about themselves.
        • It can establish an ideal situation for creative thinking and action planning.


        Active listening requires a set of skills that need continuing professional development. They include:

        • Verbal skills. Good listeners choose their words carefully, showing interest and encouraging learners to talk.
        • Body language. How you react is very important. Eye contact, posture and physical closeness all make a difference.
        • Looking after yourself. You need to put your own concerns and worries aside.
