Player Contract Tool Layout: Split the groups in to 4/5 players Ask one player to be nominated the

speaker and the other the writer. Ask each group for 2 points & write these on the flipchart paper. Repeat this process until all are happy with the number of points on the board 2. Draw a characteur of your age group What Challenges do you face ? Discuss Solutions to these challenges What choices do you have to Performance Profile Tool
