Growth Mindset seminars for Teachers
According to research by Dr Carol Dweck, a prominent psychologist at Stanford University, our mindset determines our behaviour, performance and capacity to achieve to the best of our ability.
It has been suggested that pupils with a growth mindset, whereby they believe their ability can change and grow, will outperform students with a fixed mindset who believe their ability is set in stone.
Our growth mindset seminars are for teachers who want to instil a growth mindset in the classroom:
The science behind young brains.
How the brains of young people can change and grow in a way that increases motivation to learn, develops positive beliefs and increases confidence in their ability to achieve.
Why it can be impossible to predict what pupils with a growth mindset could be capable of achieving in the future.
Strategies for encouraging a growth mindset amongst pupils.
How to bring to life a growth mindset in the classroom and across the school.
Revision Workshops Reading
Pupils struggle to revise for exams often because of a lack of skill, rather than a lack of will.

Revision Seminars for Secondary School Teachers

Giving teachers a toolkit of methods:
The differences between teenage and adult brains.
How the teenage brain retains and recalls knowledge and information.
Teaching techniques to improve recall and retention.
Embedding effective revision skills into teaching practices.
