The workshop is designed for a network, cluster or chain of schools that is considering putting the development of learning at the heart of the schools’ approach to education. The day can also be run as an open event for schools in a locality. We advise that at least two members of the school’s senior leadership team attend.
- If strengthening pupils’ learning behaviours is right for your school
- What this really means for the school, its teachers and the children.
- Why growing pupils’ learning habits has become essential in 21st Century education
- How the philosophy and practice of generating powerful learners will best fit into the schools’ learning strategy
- Stages of developing an emphasis on learning rather than performance.
- What an emphasis on learning looks and feels like in classroom practice.
- The high value learning habits of powerful learners.
- The impact of developing the use of learning habits on pupils, teachers, schools and parents
- The role of leaders in shifting and developing a culture for learning.

The depth and challenge of what is involved in building pupils’ learning power is widely underestimated. It has to be viewed as a slow, sometimes difficult but hugely worthwhile process of culture change in schools and habit change by teachers. This workshop will give a view of this journey and why it is so worthwhile to embark upon.Contact us
