We are Learn Spark!
We provide training and facilitation programmes for the education sector, charities and businesses.
Learning and Teaching
Every piece of research available tells us that high-quality teaching and learning is at the heart of improvements in students’ outcomes in the classroom. To achieve this teachers and classroom assistants need to be up to date with the latest research and strategies and given time to consider how these fit into their classroom. Our sessions will give them the knowledge, inspiration and space to do just that. Teachers will leave the session feeling challenged, yes, but also empowered and inspired to make effective change with their students.
Many are called to leadership but as many are unprepared for the trials and tribulations of the role. They can quickly find themselves on the back foot or in deep water when attempting to lead and inspire those around them. Whether they are new to leadership or in the role for a while, our leadership courses will challenge, empower and transform them as leaders and help bring new momentum to your organisation.
Ready Steady Study!
Our Study Skills programmes for students and parents directly answer the question: How do we study? Our hugely popular sessions will empower students to study independently and effectively, enabling them to reach their full potential. They will leave the session ready to take on the exam challenge!
In particular, check out our sessions for A level, higher and further education students. These students don’t just get the same old strategies rebranded. Students will learn how to use advanced graphic organisers and thinking templates to further probe their notes and develop the higher-order thinking skills essential for success in advance-level exams.
Every school and college seeks the holistic development of their students. Our courses will equip and empower students with the skills, attitudes and drive they need to achieve and thrive in school, work and life. The sessions are completely interactive with practical activities throughout. Students will be involved in team challenges, debates, discussions, self-reflection and role-plays. Their feet won’t touch the ground. They will leave the session energised and inspired, ready to take on the world!
The National Literacy Trust says, “Lacking vital literacy skills holds a person back at every stage of their life. As a child they won’t be able to succeed at school, as a young adult they will be locked out of the job market, and as a parent they won’t be able to support their own child’s learning.“ Our Literacy Development courses support teachers, classroom assistants and parents to develop these vital skills allowing all children to feel confident when reading, writing, talking and listening.
To be effective in work and life we need to make use of all our talents, strengths, skills, energy and time. It’s the focus on the development of these areas, both personally and professionally, that will determine whether we achieve our career and personal goals. Our Personal Effectiveness courses will equip your staff with the skills and confidence they need to push through their barriers and overcome their obstacles helping them achieve success.
We’ve been running highly successful facilitated workshops for years. Our bespoke sessions are guaranteed to have everyone collaborating effectively by harnessing their collective strengths. We’ve facilitated hundreds of brainstorming sessions, meetings, focus groups, strategy workshops, team-building events and conferences. We are known for keeping the energy high and for building motivation and momentum that result in dynamic ideas and solutions.
Governors and board members are strategic leaders and it is essential they are suitably and professionally trained in their role and in the context they are governing. How a board governs is at the heart of how an organisation successfully operates. Good and effective governance sets the tone, ensuring accountability and efficient and effective management and leadership.
Learn Spark offers a suite of Good Governance Modules.
