The Learning Journey

Student Coaching believe that we all embark in life on a 'Learning journey'. We all make this journey at different speeds and along different paths.

We all start the journey as 'dependent learners' relying on others for our learning. To become successful in life we need to move on from being a 'dependent' learner. This process can only happen if we have the self esteem and the confidence in ourselves to 'risk' learning new skills. If we have this self 'identity' we can then learn and acquire the skills of being an 'independent' learner. Finally we realise that it is possible to learn more with and from others and become 'inter-dependent' learners.

   

Identity

 

Who am I

Where do I Fit in?

Where Am I Going?

 

Resources exploring personal identity.

Issues of personal wellbeing confidence, self esteem, personal values & beliefs encourage learners to understand more about themselves and why they might behave the way they do. Opportunities exist here to encourage greater self reflection than a school curriculum might otherwise allow.

 

Resources exploring a sense of community cohesion.

Learners are encouraged to identify the groups and communities where they feel they belong – whether than is in school or beyond. Resources challenge such perceptions. The role of communities and the citizens with them is explored here also.

 

Resources exploring ways to raise aspirations

Explicitly dealing with issues of IAG and Careers Education & Aim Higher, learners gain opportunities to consider which pathways will help them achieve their goals and which strategies will facilitate that process. By knowing who you are, where you fit in, pathways can be made clearer.
