Inspirational Teaching Strategies


The sensational new primary course specially designed to meet all the emotional health criteria
About this course

The buzz words of today are challenge, resilience, growth mind set, forward thinking…. But who prepared us for this? Who equipped us with the skills we use to not survive but thrive    Did anyone teach you time management skills?  How to plan your day? How to work with others in the professional environment?  How old were you when you were taught how to listen, how to attend to another person?  If we look at the Early Years curriculum we can see that Listening and Attention can be seen right from the start. 

This course is aimed at teachers who want to encourage 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. 

Course Outcomes:
  • Understand the first steps: the relationship between independent thinking and respect
  • Identify the key skills that every pupil needs
  • Chart the journey from birth to post primary
  • Learn how to keep it real in the classroom, hands on ideas to use with the children
  • Acquire practical ideas to harness the increased confidence
