Our Workshops and Programmes

Developing a Growth Mindset (For Educators)

Growth mindset is the belief that one’s talents, abilities and intelligence can be developed through hard work and practice and it is recognised as a powerful teaching and learning tool. However, individuals of a fixed mindset believe that a person’s intelligence and ability is fixed and therefore cannot be changed. Fostering a growth mindset in students is critical to their academic success and development of life-long learning skills.

 

As educators it is important that we adopt a growth mindset approach to our pedagogical practices, in this way we ensure and promote equity within the classroom. Therefore, like students we must continue to learn, grow, reflect and change to meet the diversity of our students.

This workshop is designed to help you gain the tools to empower students to develop life-long learning skills. The workshop explores wider issues that may impact on mindset such as identity, mental health and wellbeing and self-esteem.

This workshop is available to Teachers, Support Staff and Leaders in Schools, Colleges and Higher Education and it is recommended for organisations that are keen to improve the academic outcomes of underrepresented and/or disadvantaged groups.

Through this workshop, students are able to see the benefits of learning and strive to become autonomous learners.

Unconscious Bias

 

 

 

 

Our unconscious mind can have a strong influence on our everyday behaviour, judgements and decision making. The workplace is not immune to bias and therefore, such biases can have a negative impact on our colleagues and students.

During this workshop you will explore what unconscious bias is and how it impacts on your judgement and decision making. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the roots of their own biases and develop strategies for over-coming unconscious bias to improve performance and build a positive working and learning environment.  

Who is this workshop for?
