We help your students realise their true potential

Studying With The Brain in Mind

Understanding how the brain works for better learning.

This workshop is now available online

Even in normal times, this is a great workshop to start the year with. Taking good revision habits from the get-go allows students to learn better throughout the year, setting them up for long-term success. We believe this is especially true in current circumstances.

Many students may have struggled with home learning and may fear having fallen behind. September will be a great time to overcome these fears and develop effective revision habits.

This is why we’re adapting this workshop for online delivery. Whether your school is able to host in-person workshops or not next year, your students can benefit from this opportunity. Using a mix of videos, resources and practical experiments, it will be available to your students on our online platform to complete and revisit at any time.

We’ve made sure that it stays just as engaging, interactive and high-quality as the workshops we’ve been delivering in schools for 14 years. And it is even more affordable, with prices starting at £7 + VAT per student…
