Getting collegial support in the daily work to develop andimprove the skills required has been successful. One important aspect is that this issomething that takes place on a continuous basis and in direct contact with the actualwork, i.e. it has given the tutors an opportunity to stop acting as squirrels and insteadshare their nuts.
