Created to show students how to develop their study skills and adopt positive and effective study habits.

Super Speed Study Skills

A high-impact, interactive learning experience.

Description

Super Speed Study Skills is an effective, immersive workshop which inspires students to take control of their studying.

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.
