For those of you who know little about Building Learning Power, here’s a short video of what it is and why it’s important. It will help you tune into the training session.

3. An activity we would like you to undertake before the training session

The very best way to help your learning in the session is to ask you to try something out in the classroom beforehand. By doing this you will begin to connect practically with what learning power is all about.

Enjoy!
