Practical, enjoyable workshops for teachers in Secondary Schools!
Choose from our range of half day workshops or our two hour seminar.
Two Hour seminar:
“Helping your students succeed in school!”
A variety of practical ideas to assist students to achieve to their full potential.
Goal Setting; Study Timetables; Effective Homework; A variety of Note Making techniques; Exam Techniques and our unique “SES TEST” method of study.
(If we have visited your school to talk to the students, this is the workshop for you! It will prove extremely valuable in helping teachers back up the techniques their students would have learnt in the SES study skills seminar).
All participants really enjoyed the session and stated in their evaluations that they had gained new skills to bring back to the classroom; you sure gave them food for thought. Thank you.” Patricia Carney, Mayo Education Centre.
Excellent, great ongoing support, which is essential. Makes all the difference that you’re a teacher, great experience of the classroom, Teacher, The Rosses Community School, Dungloe
We were absolutely thrilled; spurred our staff on to learn more about the topics raised!, Mary White, Principal, Dominican College, Wicklow
The feedback from the staff was excellent. Described by some as the best staff presentation they ever had. I will be booking another presentation for next year, Paul Crone, Principal, Old Bawn Community School, Dublin
Been teaching 15 years; at last something worthwhile that will work!, Teacher, St Michael’s, Kilmihill
Half day workshops:
Workshop 1 – “Help Your Students Succeed in School!”
Our most popular workshop! By understanding how students process and learn information, teachers can enhance their teaching techniques and ensure that their students maximise their learning potential. This seminar is a more in depth version of our two hour seminar outlined above. (If we have visited your school to talk to the students, it will prove extremely valuable in helping teachers back up the techniques their students would have learnt in the SES study skills seminar).
Relevant Goal Setting, Time Management and Note Making skills, designed specifically for students, are examined. Attributes of “a good teacher” are outlined and, perhaps most importantly, our unique “SES Test” method of study is explained. This is an interactive workshop where the teachers will have the opportunity to try out the methods for themselves.
Workshop 2 – “Differentiated Learning“
Each classroom incorporates a wide variety of learning and teaching styles. Teachers face the challenge of teaching to mixed ability groups, while creating an environment that supports students of differing abilities and learning types. This workshop aims to help teachers recognise the different learning styles and assist them in developing practical techniques suitable for a wide range of ability levels.
We examine Direct Instruction Vs Differentiated Learning; Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences; Carl Jung’s Personality Types; The Myers- Briggs Type Indicator. We outline realistic and practical approaches that teachers can use in the classroom (Mind Maps, Graphic Organisers, a variety of teaching methods/ideas).
Workshop 3 – “Team Building“
As you are aware, teamwork plays a vital role in the dynamics of the staff room. This stimulating and fun activity helps individuals explore and develop their team skills. (May prove very useful as a Middle Management workshop). This in-service incorporates a pleasing element of fun and competition which teachers thoroughly enjoy!
The staff is broken into small groups and each is allocated a simple building task (all materials are supplied). Each team must complete the task in a set time limit. At certain points in the activity,a feedback session helps to reinforce the main aspects of Leadership and Teamwork. It is non-confrontational and wholly enjoyable, allowing all personality types to engage and contribute.
The most fun in-service we have had in years. Thank you, Teacher, Mount Sackville, Dublin
