(b) During the CPD, we may ask for participation from you. To ensure the tutorial is instructive and useful for everyone and so that everyone is able to learn and engage in a positive and friendly environment, we expect you to follow our policies for standards of behaviour. For example, if you make inappropriate comments or do not let others participate, we may warn you and then cancel your attendance on the CPD
