Mastering Student Motivation

No amount of badgering from teachers or parents can motivate a student in the same way that self-motivation can.

This is a fantastic, dynamic and highly inspirational workshop that leaves students excited about their future and willing to put in the effort they need to succeed!

Mastering Student Motivation

True motivation comes from within


Mastering Student Motivation is a high impact experience designed to motivate students to take responsibility for their own futures.

It helps students to identify their own ambitions and the reasons that they want to succeed for themselves – not just because adults tell them they have to!

With their objectives clear it then provides a simple but effective goal setting template for them to use over and over again as they become accomplished goal setters and achievers.

Run in your school hall to groups of 150 at a time, this 2 hour seminar will empower your students with self-motivation and healthy, target-centered thinking patterns.


Students question their limiting belief systems & adopt a healthier, positive state of mind.

Students challenge habitual thinking patterns and replace them with more positive behaviours.

Students develop self-motivation skills, become focused on achieving self-set goals and become more confident in their ability to succeed.


Using the powerful personal development model State - Behaviour - Results, this seminar is especially useful for: students who have little idea about what they want to achieve in life; students who lack the drive to succeed; students who lack the stamina to pursue self-set goals and those who see exams as the end of the learning process.

It offers them the opportunity to clearly identify their own ambitions and puts their education into a context that is meaningful. It also provides them with a template they can use time and again to set short, medium and long term goals – a fantastic way to chart their progress through school and college.


The course has three main aims:

  • To encourage students to take personal responsibility for their futures.
  • To remove self-limiting beliefs and glass ceilings.
  • To encourage students to develop self-motivation.


Students learn to challenge habitual behaviours and thought patterns replacing them with more positive ones.

They become conscious of, and manage, their own state of mind and make the fundamental attitude and motivational shift needed for lasting changes that lead to achievement and success.

"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."
