Sixth form receive training from Elevate Education
Over the past two weeks Elevate have visited TWBS giving all of our year 12 and 13 students a one hour study skills workshop. Elevate’s presenters are highly engaging and covered plenty of topics to inform students of the best ways to achieve and hopefully surpass their target grades.
During the hour long session, students explored ways to revise and then apply their knowledge in the exam room. There were some great tips about how to prepare for the exams, both in the weeks approaching the final exams and, importantly, starting right now, using mind mapping and note taking techniques to learn things and develop understanding and memory over the longer term.
After the session, our students were given some helpful post-seminar resources to remind them of the techniques and tips covered, together with access to a wide range of digital resources. Most important of all though, the students left with more confidence in their ability to apply what they had learnt in the exam room! The feedback from the boys was excellent and I have included a few examples below:
“Very good. 10/10!”
“The presenter had lots of energy and was engaging.”
“Very useful for people who are stressed about exams!”
“Interesting and helpful advice. Clear, concise and relatable.”
“Very informative and genuinely useful – lots of things to take away and do!”
Please speak to your son about what they learnt from Elevate and encourage them to make use of the fantastic Elevate website too: https://ukstudent.elevateeducation.com/
