Study Skills and Learning Strategies
…a range of broad and subject-specific study skills…
At Lansdowne, it is a central aim of ours to develop a range of both broad and subject-specific study skills within our students.
These invaluable skills are taught and acquired during lessons and Personal Tutor periods and practised during students’ free time. It is this palette of study skills and learning strategies that enables our students to find their learning journey at Lansdowne a more efficient and easy one.
For A Level students, weekly Personal Tutor periods have an inbuilt programme of Learning Skills sessions where students are exposed to and required to complete assignments relating to time management, learning styles, attitudes and motivation, exam preparation and strategy, revision planning, amongst other learning strategies.
For GCSE students the teaching of study skills is built into their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) sessions that they receive each week with the Head of GCSE.
Supervised Study Periods in the College’s Study Centre are built into all students’ timetables. The free availability of computers allows for the development of ICT skills and internet research. The Director of e-Learning and the Study Centre Supervisor are always on hand to help students with ICT applications and problems.
