Description We ascribe a level of maturity and an ability to study independently on students in the post-16 phase which they find difficulty in attaining. For many students time management is difficult and they lack the necessary skills to research and plan their work. Revision tends to lead to a lot of wasted energy. Most students are unfamiliar with how their brain best works. Students find AS – A2 challenging and find it equally hard to settle into HE. Academic study at the highest level can be very unsettling and a traumatic experience. It is little wonder that retention rates are low and drop out rates high in many FE and HE institutions. This training day will cover a range of strategies and approaches that can be used to help engage students in their learning and help them to become successful independent learners. Planning, time management and research skills will also be developed. If we develop students as independent learners then they will be more successful and obtain far more fulfilment from their courses.
