Workshop One
Preparing For Exams
All Year Groups

Preparing for Exams is an inevitable part of school life. Being prepared mentally and physically is the only way for students to achieve their best.

Many students will say that exams aren’t their favourite thing to do; however, they can be made less intimidating by revising effectively and applying good exam techniques.

This session gets straight to the heart of preparing for exams; it will address:

  • How to plan your time for revision and assessments.
  • How to determine whether your revision techniques are effective.
  • How to tackle questions once you have entered the exam itself.
  • How to physically prepare yourself for your exam to achieve your best.
  • How to mentally align your thoughts to clear your mind from distractions.

This session is for all year groups. It is delivered as a 60-minute session.

Workshop Two
Transition to Success
All Year Groups

Transition can be difficult, especially for young people in school, and this difficulty is often magnified during the transition from primary to secondary or Yr11 to Yr12.

In life, as adults, we learn to adjust to changes because we understand how to. However, some young people need help discovering new ways of doing and learning things, often in a new environment.

This session supports the student in developing the necessary skills to build greater confidence and independence.

  • How to overcome the self-defeating habits that often hold students back.
  • How to develop a growth mindset in a new environment.
  • Learn the seven effective communication and interpersonal skills to help them develop inner confidence.
  • Develop Self-Reflection and Goal Setting skills.

This session is for all year groups. It is delivered as a 60-minute session.

Workshop Three
Motivation! Motivation! Motivation!
Learn how to be and stay motivated.
All Year Groups

Motivating students is probably the biggest challenge for teachers and parents alike. It is also one of the most important factors to a student’s success because a student who is not motivated will not learn effectively.

This session is all about becoming motivated about school. This highly interactive session is focused on engaging students and supplying them with vital techniques, not just to get them to become motivated but to remain motivated.

There are many reasons why a student lacks motivation, they may feel that they have no interest in the subject, or be distracted by external influences. This session will challenge their present mindset and give them effective approaches to overcome their lethargic attitude to school.

The sessions will cover:

  • What is motivation, and why are motivated all the time?
  • What do you believe about yourself?
  • How can you overcome a fixed mindset to become motivated?
  • How do you develop and maintain a growth mindset?
  • Why is gratitude important to remain motivated?
  • Setting workable and manageable goals to maintain motivation.
  • What are the four steps to motivational success?

This session is an ideal Year group assembly session.

Workshop Four
Social Media and Teenagers

Social media is a way for teenagers to stay in touch with their friends
However, there is a great concern about the effects social media is happening on our teenagers.

Social media is a way for teenagers to stay in touch with their friends. Teens have always talked after school, long before social media – hanging out at the bus stop, at the local park, chatting on the phone – now they just have a different platform to do so.

It is an important part of socialising and connection in the modern world. Teenagers and social media users are increasing every day.

• Inadequacy about your life or appearance…
• Fear of missing out (FOMO)
• Isolation
• Depression and anxiety
• Cyberbullying
• Self-absorption
• A fear of missing out (FOMO) can keep you returning to social media over and over again

This session explores these areas in an engaging and interactive way to ensure the student is able to have fun, as well as be made aware of the harmful aspects of social media.

Workshop Five
Owning Your Behaviour – Making the Right Choice!
All Year Groups

Taking responsibility and making the right choice is not always easy for a student. They have the complications of peer pressure, self-limiting beliefs, possibly having a fixed mindset and not forgetting the rampant hormones in their delicate adolescent years.

However, this does not excuse poor choices, leading to disruptive behaviour.

So this interactive and engaging session has been specially designed to help the students look at the possible causes of their poor choices and how to make the right choices.

The sessions will cover:

  • Understanding your choices – The Fight or Flight response
  • Beliefs about yourself
  • Inner confidence to make the right choice
  • Negative Peer Pressure
  • Fixed mindset v Growth mindset
  • Personal Responsibility

This is a two-session workshop, the maximum number of attendees being 10.

Workshop Six
Overcoming The Psychological Barriers Of Studying!
All Year Groups

Getting students to focus and study can be a massive struggle. Many students waste hours of valuable time not knowing what or where to start. They are often trying to overcome the psychological barrier which prevents them from studying.

Consequently these students often end up feeling confused, frustrated, and most of all demotivated.

The session is based on the psychology of studying from Steve’s book, Because I Said So-‘Understanding Your Teenager’

The sessions will cover:

  • What is your belief about studying/revision?
  • Why is studying/revision so difficult?
  • How can you mentally prepare yourself for studying/revision success?
  • What is the 30-10 rule and why does it work?
  • How can you think outside the box and surprise your brain into studying and revising with ease?

This session is for all year groups, it can be delivered as a half day or full day programme.
