Event Description
This webinar forms part of a series of informative and interactive Post-16 Recovery Curriculum webinars focused on helping provide continued support for post-16 leaders and practitioners during the lockdown period.

All sessions are hosted by experts in their field, designed to support schools in ensuring young people can demonstrate their learning, skills and knowledge across the curriculum, and prioritise the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of post-16 learners.

Session 1: VESPA Mindset and lockdown learning

The first webinar in the series is delivered by Steve Oakes (researcher, author, & associate lecturer in Psychology at MMU). The VESPA mindset webinar will demonstrate how academic success can be as much about student mindset as it is about intelligence.

Framed around re-engaging students to demonstrate positive study habits during this challenging time, this session introduces the notion of non-cognitive skills, looks at student behaviours associated with over and under performance, and then takes each element of the VESPA model.
Learning outcomes
By attending this webinar, delegates will:

• In light of COVID-19 understand and appreciate how a year of pastoral and curriculum support might be structured
• Explore the model to support your students in securing effective study habits for both face-to-face and remote learning

• Consider how the model might operate in your organisation

• Opportunity to ask questions

Following this event, additional sessions will be available in the Autumn term to explore the model more deeply.
