Super Speed Study Skills

“It does what it says on the tin!”

Description

Super Speed Study Skills is one of our premier workshops. Run for well over a decade in schools all over England and Wales, it has proven time and again to be a winner. Testimony to this are the huge number of schools that just keep coming back for more… year after year after year!

It is a fresh, uplifting, highly inspirational 2½ hour presentation delivered to KS3 or KS4. It is designed to show students how to use efficient and effective study techniques.

Run in your school hall to groups of 150 at a time, this workshop is ideal for schools looking to empower their students with dynamic learning to learn strategies. Combining humour and practical advice, and a whole heap of interactive tasks, it teaches students about the principles of memory and shows them how to use simple but effective learning to learn tools significantly boosting self-confidence and raising aspirations.

Benefits

Students are shown a range of study tools and techniques that will boost their learning abilities for the rest of their lives – NOT just in school!

Students become more motivated through a greater understanding of how their brain works and how their own state of mind can influence their levels of success.

Aspirations are raised through a greater sense of ‘I Can’ and abilities rise as a direct consequence of this.

Content

During the workshop students will experience the power and effectiveness of creative study techniques and be shown how to remember things more easily by using their imaginations. They will develop a far greater understanding of how their brain works and how they can make it work better for them!

They will leave the workshop equipped with a powerful range of study tools that can be throughout the entirety of their education and beyond. These tools can significantly increase the speed and effectiveness of their study and revision periods.

Aims

The course has 3 main aims:

  • To stimulate a positive attitude to studying and revision
  • To empower students with effective study techniques
  • To raise self-belief and aspirations

Results

Students will understand the power of using multi-sensory learning techniques to increase the speed and effectiveness of their study.

They will experience different learning options to make studying more enjoyable and will leave with a range of tools that they can use in school and beyond e.g. mind maps, the memory stack, the story technique among others.

They will leave with increased knowledge about how they can influence their own levels of success which is both motivating and will raise aspirations.

"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."
