Resources for Learners

Mindset Masterclasses- Our Mindset Masterclasses are a suite of ten bite sized learning modules and introduces the principles of the Psychological Characteristics of Developing Excellence (PCDE) to develop transferable skills to help students and apprentices become more confident, resilient and agile.

The Mindset Masterclasses for students and apprentices will:

  • Advance knowledge, skills, behaviours in a way the educator can measure development and progression
  • Inspire progression and development to higher levels of learning
  • Develop employability skills and how the adoption of the PCDE principles can be applied in a ‘high pressure’ setting
  • Develop invaluable transferable skills to apply learning in any domain; college, work and life.

Technical Masterclasses- The Technical Masterclasses are designed to introduce students and apprentices to techniques and practices we use with our Squad and Team UK as they prepare for international competition. They help build confidence and new skills to give students and apprentices the cutting edge above their peers that will support them on their learning programme as they progress to higher technical learning or employment.

Technical Masterclasses will:

  • reflect on world-class standards to inform the practice of vocational teaching and learning for students, apprentices and educators
  • introduce lean principles to showcase the importance in improving efficiency, work organisation and promotes continuous attention to technical excellence
  • showcase excellence and build on ideas and practices from other countries
  • develop work-related attributes to develop occupational expertise
  • test and challenge a student and apprentices’ ability to apply learning
  • aid practical problem solving and critical reflection on experience, including learning from mistakes in real and simulated settings, which are central to effective vocational teaching and learning.

Developing Skills Excellence – A series of technical resources to enhance and add value to a learner’s curriculum study programme at level 2. The resources will enhance and excel the learner’s employability and technical skills development.
