Are you looking for better teacher CPD?

Metacognition CPD

Metacognition is a low cost, well researched approach that improves the performance of students particularly those that are low achieving. The Education Endowment Foundation found that the impact of metacognition and self regulation was 7 months. Our CPD workshops help your staff with practical tips and strategies to make this a reality.

METACOGNITION CPD OVERVIEW

Metacognition is often defined as “thinking about thinking” or “learning to learn”. The Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit has highlighted metacognition as one of the most cost-effective ways to help students improve their learning. As a result the use of metacognition and self-regulation approaches has rightly become increasingly encouraged.

Our Metacognition CPD workshops help teachers learn more about what metacognition actually is, how to use it in their classrooms and how to develop independent learners with metacognitive skills.
