Developing independent and resilient learners to make more progress
Ofsted expects to see rapid academic progress, and industry demands that schools produce more confident, resilient individuals – how can schools deliver for the new progress measures and start producing the right kind of learners?
The new education secretary and the opposition education spokesman are both championing a new approach that challenges the exam factory system. Teachers have known for a long time that good exam results alone does not necessary lead to success in life or work. Now is the time to embed a new culture of learning in every classroom that breeds confidence and resilience in learners – and delivers the grades.
This workshop is about how to develop a ‘growth mindset’ amongst students to turn them into high achievers. It will explore what Ofsted are looking for when they speak to your students, and build on the literacy initiatives currently in place, to help schools develop better learners who are work-ready. The workshop will cover how to develop powerful communication skills for your students, and how to build their self-confidence and adaptability to help make them ready for exams, work and life. It will also look at how to embed a growth mindset amongst teachers to create a culture of highly effective peer coaching and continuous improvement.

This unique course is designed and delivered by inspirational trainer, successful author and former Headteacher Jackie Beere OBE. It will be based on her new book, ‘Choose to Grow’ which uses the elements of Carol Dweck’s theory on mindset*, a ground-breaking idea which has a wide range of practical applications for teachers to use to assess and deliver progress.
