Parent Twilight

These are one hour sessions offered to parents in the early evening of the school day following delivery
of our workshops to students. They are fun and informative offering parents the perfect opportunity to
encourage and support students at home as they try out their new skills.

Parent Twilight

Fun and Informative

Description

Ideal for all parents these sessions are interactive, entertaining and educational.

Parents are shown some of the techniques taught to students earlier in the day and are encouraged to actively discuss and encourage the use of these techniques during revision sessions at home. Parents are also shown a number of ways in which they can support their son/daughter as they prepare for their exams.

Benefits

Parents will leave the twilight session better equipped to support their son/daughter as they develop their use of
the skills taught. They will also have a good understanding of the role they can play as students prepare for their exams.

This session shows parents how they can get actively involved in exam preparation without having to know anything about the subjects being studied. It also shows parents how they can help their son/daughter to manage stress through busy study/revision periods.

"Jay’s enthusiasm, knowledge of the strategies, techniques and tips was excellent and was exactly what we were looking for at this time in Year 11 for our students and parents. It’s testament to Jay and the workshop as to how many pupils had told their parents about how much they enjoyed it and how useful they found it that some students were calling and texting their parents during the school day to say ‘Mum/Dad you need to come to the Parent’s workshop this evening!’ The strategies were relevant, easy to use, engaging and delivered in a way which will facilitate the students use of them as well. It was great to be given some resources by Jay in order to support the pupils through the revision process as the year goes on as well. I will look to rebook this event for next years, Year 11 at a similar time."
