Building character education into every classroom: helping pupils learn how to learn
Campaign for Learning, London, SW1P 1RD
12 May 2016
Cost: £245 (no VAT) including lunch, Friends and discounted rates available
The government is committed to helping schools ensure that more children develop a set of character traits, attributes and behaviours that underpin success in education and work, such as:
- perseverance, resilience and grit
- confidence and optimism
- motivation, drive and ambition
- communication and collaboration skills
- tolerance and respect
- conscientiousness, curiosity and focus
This learning to learn workshop will help teachers develop resilient, independent learners that make outstanding progress
Based on extensive evidence, metacognitive (learning to learn) approaches have been shown to have consistently high levels of impact, with pupils making an average of eight months’ additional progress. Building this type of character education into classroom practice is now a government priority.
Join Jackie Beere, author, former Headteacher, SIP and trainer who is an expert in learning to learn, for this one day workshop. Her book The Learner’s Toolkit provides many practical activities to help develop the essential learning skills. For the full programme for the day see below.
