      Preparing your learners for GCSE exams to maximise success (Rob Butler)

This workshop will help you to move away from last minute revision strategies to supporting your students across the GCSE.

You will also consider the implications of current research into what helps students be more successful.

      · Recognise the opportunities of change and identify actions that will have the highest impact

      · Identify ways of strengthening retention of subject knowledge, and examination technique

      · Strategies to use in the long term and short term to help students learn for exams
