Creating Expert Learners

Getting learners to take the responsibility for managing their own learning

Reasons for attending this programme:
Would you like your learners to take responsibility for managing their own learning and develop a range of skills and strategies in order to get the most out of their programmes? What characteristics, qualities and attitudes are essential for learning effectively? And how can we develop these to create expert learners?

As the variety of learners on our programmes continues to diversify, it is becoming increasingly important to consider how we can support students to become expert learners.

What is this training about?
Exactly what it means to be an ‘expert learner’. This programme looks at the building blocks involved and provides a model to utilise and develop. And we provide practical strategies for classrooms and workshops that enable teachers and tutors that underpin this model.
There is strong evidence that knowing how to learn has a positive impact on attitude to learning and on raising achievement. Supporting learners to develop a range of thinking and learning styles in order to get the most out of their programmes and to take responsibility for managing their own learning is at the core of expert learning.

During this programme you learn:

  • The characteristics of ‘expert learners’ and the skills that are required to become one
  • To acknowledge ‘the self’ in learning
  • Factors that interfere with successful learning
  • Recognise the conditions that are necessary to promote learning
  • Strategies that suit individual preferred learning and thinking styles so making learning easier
  • A range of approaches to build specific learning skills including strategies for memory, working with and processing information
  • How to develop a model of The Expert Learner


  • Staff and students have a deeper understanding of how they learn
  • Lessons become lively and personalised
  • Students become skilled in taking more responsibility for learning
  • Attitudes to learning are positive
  • Achievement is raised

  • The magic was in the group brought together by Kate Julie and Owen. You miss a great opportunity if you don’t enter this course. The most magic was the potatoes! Changing belief systems in a split second. Keep up the outstanding work Thank you
    Jos Frederiks NLP Trainer

  • This course has been worth every penny. Fast doesn’t mean lacking in quality. The sheer tonnage of information is astonishing. It’s so worth it. You will learn a lot even if you are a very experienced teacher and you will enjoy it
    Dr Sharon Ney

  • It doesn’t matter how experience you are, go for it. The training was the most magic. Teaching must go over to learning and we in school have to take responsibility for that. I will use this in my work as a consultant helping schools to improve. Many many thanks for a great course.
    Anita Svennson,Swedish Educational consultant

  • This course helped me widen my ideas about teaching and learning. It prompted lots of questions about how we should approach learning. Experiential learning is profound and fun. Thank you
    David Hicks,Music Teacher

  • I thought I knew how to design a course. After attending this training it’s totally changed my view about learning design. If you are a teacher this course is mandatory for your career.

  • I may wobble but I move forward with a giggle into all that is possible. The course has accelerated my own slow and steady learning into the amazing and continued possibility of learning
    Vicky Morgan,College lecturer

  • This was loads of fun and I loved it. Fun and interactive ways of learning and how to apply that to teaching. Some may think that its only for teachers but we are all teachers in different areas. This course totally surpassed my expectations and all my goals were achieved. Creative teaching makes you want to teach. I highly recommend it so that more good teachers equal more confident kids. Just do it!
