Year 12 students had a great workshop with Young Enterprise. The focus was on study skills. The programme for the session involved looking at learning styles, revision techniques, methods of studying, time management and designing your study area. Pupils had the opportunity to think of their learning style (audio, visual, kinaesthetic) and how it would help their revision technique. It was well led by Martin from Young Enterprise and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
