METACOGNITION & SELF-REGULATION

Metacognition and self-regulation provide "very high impact for very low cost, based on extensive evidence."

(Education Endowment Foundation, 2023)

We offer metacognition and self-regulation training in three ways:

1. SELF-REGULATED LEARNING SUPERPOWERS (ONLINE COURSE)

2. SELF-REGULATED LEARNING SUPERPOWERS (FACILITATED WORKSHOPS)

3. THE LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™

See below for more details on each of these options.

1. SELF-REGULATED LEARNING SUPERPOWERS (ONLINE COURSE)

In this course, you will learn about the three SELF-REGULATED LEARNING SUPERPOWERS that can help all people - children, young people and adults alike - become more confident, curious, self-regulated learners:

 

 Metacognition: Monitoring and controlling your thought processes

 Self-regulation: Monitoring and controlling your feelings and behaviours

 Oracy: Speaking and listening with confidence in a range of contexts

2. SELF-REGULATED LEARNING SUPERPOWERS
(FACILITATED WORKSHOPS)

We also provide this training in the form of four 90-minute facilitated workshops:
 

  1. Introduction to the Self-Regulated Learning Superpowers

  2. Metacognition: Monitoring and controlling your thought processes

  3. Self-Regulation: Monitoring and controlling your feelings and behaviours

  4. Oracy: Developing high-level speaking and listening skills in a range of contexts

You can order these separately, or together as a bulk deal (this works well as an annual programme of professional development). The workshops can be delivered face-to-face or remotely. 

We operate a scale of fees according to the size of the school and/or the number of participants. To arrange a quote - or to find out more - click the button below 

3. THE LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™

THE LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™ is a new approach to teaching children and young people how to become more confident, curious, independent learners.

An 8-year evaluation carried out at the University of Cambridge found that THE LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™ led to significantly improved attainment across the curriculum, with accelerated gains among children from disadvantaged backgrounds (
Mannion, McAllister and Mercer, 2018)

In 2020 we published Fear is the Mind Killer: Why Learning to Learn deserves lesson time - and how to make it work for your pupils, which sets out how to implement THE LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™ in detail.

 

Here are some of the kind things people have written about the book:

"I don't know of any other book that provides such clear guidance on how to harness the common elements of learning across the curriculum. Highly recommended."

We now work with schools all over the world to help implement THE LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™ in a wide range of contexts: from early years to adult education, from disadvantaged schools to elite international colleges, and from workplaces to refugee camps.

For example, we recently helped implement a LEARNING SKILLS CURRICULUM ™ at Knysna High School in South Africa. The following video testimonials were filmed three months after implementing daily LEARNING SKILLS lessons for all students in Years 8 and 9:

“I could see the difference within two weeks”

“It's definitely changing a lot of kids' lives”

“They've gained such confidence”

“It allows them to say what they want to say without being judged”

“One boy who never does any work handed in 5 pages, all typed up. Done and dusted!”

Learning Skills provides the students with a safe space”

"It just worked phenomenally!"

“It is a joy - I just want to do this all the time!”

“It's already spreading throughout the school”

"At first I wasn't sure about this project... and then it's like the light bulb just went on!”

“They don't want to stop public speaking!”

“I did not see it having quite such a big impact so quickly”
