FPL for Teachers, Trainers and Mentors explained

One of the keys to outstanding teaching is a practical understanding of how the brain learns. Our 3A Training Workshops show teachers, trainers and mentors how to apply the insights of our book Whole Brain Learning and Teaching to their students, trainees or young people. Workshops show how educational Achievement that leads to Access to employment and career options is linked to raising and maintaining Aspiration in learners. They have introduced the role of the brain in learning to a wide of educators from University lecturers to Playgroup leaders; from Adult mentors to Youth workers.

The brain is the organ of learning in the human body and it makes sense for educators to have a working knowledge of how it learns and what facilitates or hinders learning in the brain. However, apart from Early Years teacher training and Special Needs training, most teachers have not had the opportunity to learn about the organ they interact with day and daily. 3A training fills this gap in a way that is practical, enjoyable and is also great for team building.

In the last 9 years these workshops have introduced hundreds of teachers and trainers to the exciting developments about how the brain learns. They have put an indispensable key into their hands to facilitate outstanding teaching that enable children, students and trainees overcome barriers to learning and experience successful learning. Participants discover the grain of their own brains and how to teach in ways that match the the various learning preferences of their students and learners across a wide age range.

Here is a selection of the topics that can be included on a programme of workshops. They can be delivered in half-day or one-day programmes or as a series of workshops over a period of weeks and tailored to your staff requirements.
