Developing Positive Home Environments for Learning (Online Session: Key Influencers/Students)

Please note – This activity carries a cost and can only be only be booked by schools or colleges

60-90 minute interactive online webcast for key influencers alongside students (or each group separately) via Zoom, exploring tweaks that can be made to the household, in environment and parental actions, that can make students work smart, not hard. We focus on the idea of a learning community, and the simple study skills that can be developed together, to drip-feed memory and recall them in fun ways.

Overall objectives:
Push get parents and students to develop an understanding of what ‘marginal gains’ need to be practised each day to ensure overall success, not just for grades but for developing an adaptable resilient form of employability in young people. The session focuses on simple effective revision techniques, and our COPE framework (time management, focus, staying calm towards exams/assessments). This session is part of Push’s unique framework on study skills and revision techniques, designed by Johnny Rich.

The online session is hosted by Aron Tennant (Push manager and professional screenwriter) and Moj Taylor (Push lead presenter and comedian/actor/diver). Both have studied to MA-level in creative writing and performance, respectively, and both have an enhanced DBS. They have performed 1,000s of Push sessions collectively.

Safeguarding / GDPR:
All key influencers’ answers are kept anonymous to all other attendees, in the chat and in the Q&A. All mics/cameras are controlled to be off for attendees, by Push (the hosts). The teacher is made a host alongside Aron and Moj, and only hosts can control the live settings. Hosts can also monitor all chat, or any concerns raised by an attendee, that the school can then follow up with them. We ensure this is a sustained and progressive activity, with a followup summary send to attendees. We do not need any student email addresses for this session. All presenters have enhanced DBSs.
