Description

Post 16 presents many different challenges and opportunities. Students are expected to think and act more independently, be more self-disciplined, mature and responsible. At this stage students ultimately really begin to take responsibility for and control of their own learning.

AIMS

  • To enable them to first examine and then to maximise their intelligence, abilities and potential.
  • To equip them with the skills to plan and direct a successful route through post 16 education.

THEMES

  1. Mindset Matters: Examining ability beliefs and approaches to challenge.
  2. The Malleable Brain: The basics of brain biology.
  3. Efficient Learning: Lessons from Cognitive Science.
  4. Marginal Gains: Strategies to improve personal performance (collaboration, problem solving, research skills and time management tools).

Objectives

  • Assess their personal mindset and level of academic resilience 
  • Explore independent learning, interdependence and states of maturity
  • Understand the basics of brain biology 
  • Develop effective evidenced-based study strategies
