OUR LEARNING POCKETS FOR ADULTS
These pockets of learning are designed to be used separately or as part of a series that will work together to enrich a persons learning. The content will also enhance the view they have of themselves and their ability as a learner. Learning Pockets help to raise confidence and self-esteem and support people to get on the road to success.
There are plenty of adults who feel that they never achieved academically when they were younger, which in turn has lowered their confidence and self-esteem in their ability to learn new things later in life. Some feel inadequate when trying to support their children’s learning in school and others work or volunteer in some capacity with groups of children or adults, but lack confidence in their group management skills. The Learning Pockets for Adults have been designed to help overcome any past issues and gain the confidence to start learning again, understand how best to support children’s learning or gain the skills required to run successful groups.
A Pocketful of Confidence Looking at the reasons why some people lack confidence, and thinking about ways of leaving those behind, so as to move forwards and make the most of any opportunities that present themselves in the here and now (A really good place to start your ‘pocketful’ experience).
A Pocketful of Self-Esteem Developing further as an individual by determining a direction in life and working out how to get there using a growth mind-set, as well as building self-esteem by learning strategies to overcome any barriers to achieving goals. (Builds on confidence gained from first pocketful).
A Pocketful of Progress Analysing an individual’s personal skill set and using the resulting ‘profile’ to start thinking about available choices and how to make informed decisions with regard to Further Education, Careers and Relationships using that self-knowledge. (Applies knowledge gained from first two learning pockets).
A Pocketful of Success Determining what success looks like, deciding on personal next steps to achieve it, and learning how to present ourselves in the best possible light to persuade others of our value in a range of settings. (Consolidates learning from previous three pockets and encourages personal action as a result).
A Pocketful of Education Focussing on how we all learn from birth onwards, what the brain absorbs (or doesn’t) and what we can do to support our children’s progress in school, especially using carefully chosen language which is more likely to get a positive response from everyone concerned.
A Pocketful of Resilience Encouraging your child to value ‘difference’ and ‘mistakes’ as valuable learning tools, helping them to see challenges as opportunities to grow, and providing them with the understanding of how to cope when they feel like shying away from valuable learning opportunities.
A Pocketful of Communication Seeing life from a teenager’s perspective and appreciating what is happening biologically in their brain at this special time of life, so as to improve communication generally but particularly with reference to their educational attainment and choices for the future.
A Pocketful of Achievement Looking at a range of ways in which you can support your child to achieve educationally, both inside and outside of school, including strategies for improved thinking skills, effective revision and enhanced recall of learning.
A Pocketful of Facilitation Facilitation skills for anyone who works in some capacity with groups, learning how to find the balance between achieving the task for which the group exists and acknowledging the needs of the individuals involved, whilst effectively managing the group as a whole.
A Pocketful of Groups Learning how to manage the range of personalities and attitudes found within a group, ensuring that everyone is provided with an environment in which they feel emotionally safe and ready to share the experience, whilst encouraging equality and diversity through inclusion.
A Pocketful of Experiential Learning How to provide sessions where participants become immersed in the learning and are encouraged to make sense of it themselves through hands-on, or visually stimulating experiences, rather than remaining passive listeners who may well forget what the educator thinks they have learned.
A Pocketful of Session Planning How to construct an effective plan that ensures a successful session, where most importantly the desired outcomes are achieved by all those taking part, but which also contributes to learner enjoyment, and the smooth delivery of a range of activities and resources
