It’s one thing to read the books but another to really embed resilient, effort-based growth mindset approaches with your
students and, crucially, with your staff. Lizzie Overton’s wellpaced, hugely well resourced and researched training provides you with the tools to do just that. If you are wanting to effect change that lasts, I can’t recommend Lizzie highly enough: her humour and rigour are the perfect combination to move teachers forward through a collaborative, supported process towards the cognitive and practical shifts that will make all the difference.

Unlearn the unsustainable thinking that holds us back
Our personal and collective mindsets are commonly fixed in ways that leave us less capable of thriving in the fast changing and challenging world of the 21st century. This CPD opportunity builds on decades of extensive mindset research, including that of Carol Dweck, which shows that people with ‘growth mindsets’ are: more resilient to the challenges they encounter; better equipped to learn from others; confident that sustained effort is what leads to high achievement and long term success.
You will learn:
- About the neuroscience that revolutionises our understanding of intelligence
- How to embed a culture of growth mindset across your whole organisation
- The importance of taking time to look at your own mindset so that others can learn from your example
- How to create learning opportunities that the build character we need for 21st century living and learning
- How a culture of growth mindset can dramatically raise achievement and engagement
This training is suited to educators and leaders in all settings and can run in a range of ways including:
A short talk and workshop – designed to inspire discussion around future development
A half or full day’s training – designed to kick start and clarify focus for extended development
An extended action research programme – a highly supported process designed to bring about the effective implementation and embedding of new ideas over an extended period. Typically this includes initial training which is then followed by remote or face to face support over a period of between 1 term and and a full year. An action research programme can operate on a 1:1 basis or with a group.
