Neuroscience for Teachers programme begins

Posted: 25th January 2021 by braincando

We are excited to report that the Neuroscience for Teachers programme started this month, to great success.

The six workshops will concentrate on neuroscience and how to use this within the classroom and in teaching young people. We are delighted to have over 30 teachers involved in this pioneering programme, who come from a range of educational settings across primary and secondary schools from both the state and independent sectors.

Professor Patricia Riddell will be running this CPD accredited course which will be running online and remotely due to the current pandemic.

We have had some fantastic feedback after the first session – you can take a look at some of these testimonials below:

Loved it – looking forward to the next one! 

I really enjoyed the day. It was challenging but accessible and relevant.  Thank you. 

Fantastic course, thought-provoking and lots of ideas to try out across school. 

What was particularly pleasing was the organisers practised what they preached and allowed time to digress, listen to participants and allow all to feel valued. 

Thank you for everyone who is involved in this project time and work that is taking to set it all up. Feel extremely privileged and grateful to be a part of this. 

Thank you. I had an enriching and engaging day. I can’t wait for the next session. 

The presenters were lovely and very warm with their approach. 

Many thanks for organising. I really enjoyed the workshop and the discussions generated throughout the day. Thoroughly enjoyable! 

I was beyond excited when I heard about this course. I think it should form part of all teacher training.

Firstly, thank you so much for the smooth way in which the Neuroscience Course went yesterday. I very much enjoyed it and my brain is simply bursting with new ideas now!
