The Importance Of Sixth Form Study Skills Study

Updated: 3 hours ago

As sixth form teachers, you understand the challenges your students face as they navigate the demands of A-level exams and prepare for the next stage of their academic journey. With the pressure to excel academically often comes stress, anxiety, and uncertainty about how to study effectively. That's where study skills workshops come in. At The Life Skills Company, we recognise the importance of equipping students with the tools they need to succeed, both academically and personally. Our Sixth Form Study Skills Workshop is designed to do just that—maximise success by empowering students with effective study techniques and strategies to ease tension, stress, and anxiety.

The Importance of Study Skills

Study skills are the foundation of academic success. Effective revision, condensing information, and time management are essential skills that not only improve grades but also promote a healthy work-life balance and reduce stress levels. By mastering these skills, students can approach their exams with confidence, knowing that they have the tools and strategies to succeed.


How Study Skills Workshops Ease Tension, Stress, and Anxiety:

  • Effective Revision Techniques: Our workshop helps students discover effective and enjoyable revision techniques tailored to their individual learning styles. By learning how to study smarter, not harder, students can reduce the amount of time spent studying while maximising retention and understanding of key concepts.

  • Condensing and Summarising Information: We teach students how to condense large volumes of text into manageable chunks for revision. By breaking down complex information into bite-sized pieces, students can streamline their study process and focus on the most important concepts.

  • Time Management: Time management is crucial for maintaining a healthy work-life balance and avoiding burnout during exam season. Our workshop equips students with practical strategies for prioritising tasks, managing their time effectively, and maintaining a sense of perspective amidst the pressures of exams.

At The Life Skills Company, we're committed to maximising success in the sixth form by providing students with the tools and support they need to thrive. Our Sixth Form Study Skills Workshop is a 1.5-hour session designed to optimise learning and maximise grades, focusing on effective revision, condensing information, and time management. Led by experienced facilitators, our workshop empowers students to take control of their academic journey and approach exams with confidence and resilience.

We’re dedicated to helping students maximise their potential through practical workshops and conferences designed to enhance key independent learning skills. 

Part 1: Speed Reading and Effective Note Taking

The first part of our Independent Learning Conference focuses on two essential skills: speed reading and effective note-taking. Speed reading techniques help students absorb information faster and read around their subjects, enabling them to cover more material in less time without sacrificing comprehension. Effective note-taking skills are crucial for synthesising information from speeches and lectures, ensuring that students can capture key points and concepts accurately for later review and revision.

Part 2: Condensing/Summarising and Time Management

In the second part of our conference, students delve into two further independent learning skills: condensing/summarising and time management. Condensing and summarising techniques teach students how to distil complex information into concise summaries, enabling them to learn and revise effectively, reference materials efficiently, and avoid plagiarism. Time management strategies help students optimise their work-life balance, avoid procrastination, and stay focused on their studies, ensuring that they make the most of their valuable time and avoid the dreaded last-minute rush.

How Our Independent Learning Conference Empowers Students:

  • Enhanced Learning Efficiency: By mastering speed reading and effective note-taking techniques, students can cover more material in less time and retain information more effectively, leading to improved academic performance and confidence.

  • Improved Study Habits: Learning how to condense and summarise information and manage time effectively fosters better study habits and organisational skills, setting students up for success in higher education and beyond.

  • Reduced Stress and Anxiety: Equipping students with practical tools to manage their workload and study effectively can help alleviate stress and anxiety, enabling them to approach exams with confidence and resilience.

  • Preparation for Higher Education: The skills learned in our Independent Learning Conference are essential for success in higher education, where independent study and time management are crucial for academic achievement.

At The Life Skills Company, we're committed to empowering sixth form students with the independent learning skills they need to succeed academically and beyond. Our Independent Learning Conference equips students with practical tools and strategies to enhance their study habits, manage their time effectively, and approach their studies with confidence and resilience. By investing in their personal and academic development, we're helping students unlock their full potential and achieve their goals in sixth form and beyond.
