This ‘in-person’ or ‘online & live’ conference helps students develop good independent learning skills, for the sixth form, university and the workplace.
Schools find that this conference supports subject teachers across the curriculum, helping to set the right academic expectation and work ethic.
Specifically, it enhances four key independent learning skills:
Speed Reading (reading faster with the same comprehension)
Effective Note Taking (making good notes from speech)
Condensing/Summarising (to 20% of the original written text)
Time Management (using our time effectively and efficiently)
With this new skill set, students are better equipped to:
Read around their subject
Optimise work-life balance
Avoid last-minute itis, and
Stay focussed on their studies throughout their 2 year courses.
"You will never change your life
until you change something you do daily.
The secret of your success
is found in your daily routine."
Whether online & live or in-person, the Independent Learning Conference lasts approximately 2 hours (we will work within your school timetable) and is best delivered in the morning. Alternatively, the online & live conference can be broken
in to two separate 1 hour sessions delivered during afternoons. For our in-person conference, we can also offer an optional final section to help students create a persuasive presentation and get their message across. This adds a highly interactive close to the in-person conference.
Students and staff regularly tell us that our conferences are enjoyable and engaging, especially as we incorporate lots of activities throughout. Schools like that students go away having practised the techniques and are ready to implement them across the curriculum.
We will work alongside you to ensure that the conference is well organised and a success for all. Please get in touch to chat about your needs.
