He delivered the sessions in such a fun way

We were delighted to be able to run the 2 workshops to fairly small groups of our year 10 Next Steps targeted students today. The trainer, James Sherwood was lively, engaging and really approachable. He delivered the session in such a fun way; the students were focussed and I loved the way they all eventually went away with pens and highlighters to help motivate further study. The workshop media used and worksheet were good quality – I liked the layout of the sheet with the different tasks to complete. It was great to have a different person – not their usual teachers, to tell the students that they do need to study hard to achieve success and get them to think about how to make study more effective and use their time wisely – e.g. by prioritising tasks while still having a work flow to the day with breaks. As the audience were targeted students by Next Steps, many of whom qualify for the Pupil Premium due to deprivation, I thought the section exploring the potential barriers and distractions to their study present at home worked really well. As a Science teacher, I enjoyed the examples based on biology and chemistry and the session did keep their attention for the whole 2 hours. Many thanks to Next Steps South West for facilitating these sessions and to James for the excellent workshops. Thanks again – we would never have had funding available for this if it wasn’t for Next Steps!
