Exam Busters

Exam Busters is an inspiring, intensive and interactive workshop which empowers students with exam preparation tips, revision tools and stress management techniques.

Exam Busters

A multisensory, active learning experience designed for students preparing to sit their GCSE’s/Nationals exams. Aligns with Gatsby Benchmark 7

Description

We recommend that students be sat around tables of 6-8 in a venue conducive to learning to receive the full workshop experience, however we are able to deliver bespoke seminars.

This workshop can be delivered in either:

  • 2 x 2 hour workshops
  • 4 x 1 hour workshops
  • 3 x 80 minute workshops

Please note that this workshop is designed to be delivered over the course of 2 hours. Condensed versions of the workshop are still incredibly effective, but this does mean removing techniques. Students who sit the full 2 hours will leave the workshop with a comprehensive exam toolkit.

"Natalie was excellent – her enthusiasm and passion were really clear, and this rubbed off on the students. They were all really positive about the content and the course leader. Communication with Natalie before the event was really easy, she arrived early in the morning and was adaptable to our requests! 10/10!!!"
