Super Speed Study Skills
Super Speed Study Skills is an effective, immersive workshop which inspires students to develop metacognition and take control of their studying, which in turn will encourage them to mature into well-developed lifelong learners.

Super Speed Study Skills

A high-impact, interactive learning experience created to show students how to develop their study skills and adopt positive and effective study habits

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.

Benefits

Super Speed Study Skills will benefit students by:

  • Boosting metacognition
  • Increasing motivation
  • Providing a comprehensive study booklet
  • Delivering a range of tools and techniques to suit left and right brain learners
  • Promoting interleaving, spaced repetition and retrieval practice

"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."
