"Research conducted by the EEF and others around the world strongly suggests that compensating for the negative effect of school closures on the gap will require a sustained effort." Covid 19 Support Guide for Schools 2020

Across the country there has been a wide spread difference in the educational experiences of pupils during school closure.  It will be a long, well planned journey before all pupils return to their starting points.  One of the impacts of time out of the classroom, has been on pupil's abilities to work independently and engage with deeper learning opportunities.  This course will include time to explore metacognition, identified by the EEF as making up to 7 months difference in learning for a very low cost.   If you are looking for sustained improvements in the quality of learning in your classroom and, subsequently, student progress over time look no further. This course is aimed at teachers who want to promote a class full of independent thinkers.  A student body that can not only think for themselves but also work together! The day will be packed with a raft of practical ideas to promote autonomous thought and collaboration.
