Psychology INSET

Ali regularly visits schools and colleges to provide bespoke Psychology revision sessions for students and tailored training for staff. These typically focus on exam technique for both AQA and Edexcel exam boards, and are designed to accommodate your school / colleges timings and make it either a half or whole day’s revision. These sessions are currently being run face to face using PPE and online via Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype.

A typical day at A level involves getting both Y12 and Y13 to attend in the morning for paper 1 and general revision / exam technique, and then just have the Y13 present in the afternoon for paper 2 and paper 3 revision. At GCSE the focus would be on Paper 1 (am) and paper 2 (pm) or whatever suits you and your students best Sessions are fully interactive and focus on exam technique rather than content, resources will be provided.

Other colleges also get the students to contribute to the cost. Bookings for dates over Easter and February / May half term are popular as demand is high and it also prevents students being pulled out of other lessons which some staff prefer. Twilight sessions are also available.

Outcomes of the day:
Increased understanding of assessment demands for each exam paper
Understood current and common issues from a senior examiner’s perspective
Received key feedback from recent A level and GCSE examinations
Taken part in a range of interactive activities to fully understand content
Understood examiner insight and teaching ideas to raise student attainment
Will leave the day fully motivated to revise and properly prepared for the exam
This is an excellent opportunity for your students to absorb the necessary examination skills from someone who has supervised the marking of thousands of candidates’ exams over the last 13 years.

” I just wanted to say thank you for organising the workshop yesterday, it was really helpful – especially from a mocks point of view, I know its not the same online but you did really well to make it interactive and engaging

Thank you so much for today’s session. It was fantastic and so lovely to meet you. I feel like I’ve gained so much and am looking forward to implementing some of the different strategies discussed. Unexpected outcome has also been that I feel a bit more confident that some of the things I have been doing, are the right things to be doing for the lower ability students.

Seaford Head School, June 2021

“Hearing someone with so much knowledge of the ins and outs of the exams was such a great opportunity. It was extremely useful and he was very inclusive. I found his resources extremely helpful. It gave me such a useful insight into how i will be examined and what to look out for. It also helped me make links between different parts of the course and different studies and how they can evaluate each other, instead of everything separated in my mind.
