C/D Borderline Kids need Social,Emotional and Motivational Interventions

From our many years experience of working with C/D borderline kids we know that they need social, emotional and
motivational interventions to help them through their exams. Revision techniques on their own are no good.

Our pre-exam course Pump up the Volume for year 9, 10 and 11 students incorporates two important things:

Why Education is important to Your Future.
This part of the course paints a bleak future for those who will leave
school with low or no qualifications. It is a form of 'negative' motivation that is
intended to make students sit up and think about their future. We also highlight
the benefits of leaving school with good qualifications especially the relationship
between education and greater choice of career paths.

Accelerated Learning Techniques.
This part of the course shows students how they can memorise and recall
many items of information over a short period of time using visualisation. On average
most young people can memorise from 50 to 100 bits of information, chronologically,
in approximately 1 hour.

Pump up the Volume is presented by Tom Hendry whose background includes children and foster homes, father in prison,
mother on benefit, leaving school with no qualifications and doing dead-end jobs for the first few years of his working
life. He has experience of working with over 80,000 young people since 1999.

Yours faithfully
