EEF evidence shows that developing metacognition and self-regulation in classrooms adds 0.8 months of progress for negligible cost. Learn how to change mindsets at this one day workshop with Jackie Beere OBE
This course is for schools, colleges, community and educational settings already on the growth mindset journey or those who are new to the ideas.
  • Create a culture where independent learning, emotional intelligence and metacognition nurtures a growth mindset.
  • Develop optimism and resilience in teachers and students
  • Improve results and attitudes in a demanding, high stakes educational context
  • Improve staff wellbeing, raise morale and enhance collaboration
  • Ensure excellent teaching and learning is attainable and sustainable

The way we think about learning makes all the difference in our progress towards successful outcomes. This programme will explain what a growth mindset is and how everyone can develop ways of thinking that will improve outcomes for learners.

Fixed and growth Mindset is a simple idea championed by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck after decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. 

With a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like behaviours, intelligence or talent, are fixed. They spend their time avoiding challenges that may threaten their self-beliefs, instead of welcoming them. They also believe that talent alone, not effort, creates success. They’re wrong.

With a growth mindset, people believe that their basic qualities can be developed through dedication and hard work – that effort is the path to mastery. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for lifelong success. Understanding growth mindset creates motivation and raises achievement. It also enhances wellbeing and relationships. This workshop shows how to change mindsets.

Carol Dweck’s research shows us what all great leaders need to know:

  • That brains and talent alone don’t bring success
  • How a fixed mindset can stand in the way of it
  • Why praising outcomes and intelligence doesn’t foster self-esteem and accomplishment, but can jeopardise them
  • How teaching about mindsets and understanding how the brain works can raise productivity and improve the bottom line


At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Understand growth mindset for ourselves and see how it can create a culture for outstanding learning
  • Develop excellent growth mindset learning strategies in the classroom with many practical activities to try
  • Use assessment as part of the learning process and ensure feedback supports good progress and develops a growth mindset attitude
  • Use an effective coaching method to help teachers and learners develop a mindset for continuous improvement
  • Take away various resources to use back at school and create a personal action plan
