Learning ‘style’. Visualisation (results day). What will you do differently from GCSE/next year? What would you change last year? Goals – things you will do differently. Comfort zones and stretch zones. Setting goals. Facing new challenges. Daily goals, daily actions. Power of habit.

"...Interactive, noisy.....physical, promote thinking.....take-away tools and techniques..."
I work with small or large groups. My requirements are a presentation facilities (screen), flip charts and photocopying for each student's worksheet. Floor space and/or break-out rooms can be useful.
