Student Workshops

We help your students realise their true potential

Growth Mindset

Make resilient and motivated learners out of your students.

Our Growth Mindset workshops use research from Carol Dweck, the originator of the mindset theory, and other researchers to teach students how they can become great independent learners.

The workshop explores the importance of effort, how mistakes help you learn, how to use setbacks as motivation, and the importance of curiosity and courage. We will provide your students with practical tips and suggestions to help them develop a growth mindset and improve their resilience.
