  • Mandy Pedder (Primary Consultant)
  • Adele Thomson (TLC)

This course is part of a series of courses using evidence-based research to develop, and embed, 'great' teaching and learning. In this course we will:

Consider the importance of developing independence and resilience in the classroom and the impact of this on pupil outcomes
Examine the characteristics of independent and resilient learners
Have a range of practical strategies for developing independence

" It is well documented that learners demonstrate increased self esteem, greater independence and ultimately higher achievement when they are involved in the development and understanding of their own learning experiences... When given greater opportunities for decision making and greater autonomy in their learning, they generally demonstrate greater motivation and perseverance." (Diana Pardoe - Towards Successful Learning)

One of the legacies of the pandemic has been loss of independence and resilience for many of our learners. This course will consider research findings regarding this and will examine principles and practical strategies to enable children to develop the necessary skills to support self-regulation and autonomy in learning.
