Teaching skills around planning, monitoring and evaluating the learning process can drive results upwards
Teaching that genuinely inspires students to learn is an art form in itself. When pupils aren’t engaged, they fail to reach their potential at school, which could compromise their future. No one wants to see students receive lower grades than they are capable of, just because they didn’t have the skills to learn effectively. When the time you have to work out a winning strategy is limited, Metacognition can get you there faster.
Metacognition - the key to progress
After working with hundreds of schools over 25 years we know there is no one-size-fits-all golden ticket when it comes to effective learning. Taking a metacognitive approach however, can make all the difference. The Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit highlights Metacognition and self regulation skills, as having consistently high levels of impact, with pupils making an average of + 7 months additional progress over the course of a year. Metacognition can change any student’s learning behaviours, increasing their confidence and their self-belief. Understanding the way they process information best allows them to be more aware of what they are learning and better monitor the actual process of absorbing information. They can then overcome challenges independently in the future.
Pinpoint exactly where students’ learning can improve
Some students produce their best homework sat at their desk, headphones on, music blasting. Others need complete silence. Some work better on their own. Others prefer to be part of a team, bouncing ideas around to solve problems. Every student is different but teaching what Metacognition is and how to use it will enable every student to understand what methods work best for them so they can take control of their learning. Learning Performance works with schools around the world delivering highly effective Metacognition training programmes.

Lasting impact well beyond the workshop
While there is ample research and evidence into how Metacognition impacts student progress and attainment, on the ground it can be difﬁcult to quantify, especially when taking a holistic approach like we do. That’s why our impact reports are based on what matters most - pupil, parent and staff voice.
At the end of every Learning Performance workshop students are invited to evaluate the workshop and rate their presenter. We then create an impact report for you which shows feedback given, key takeaways, plans to do things differently and learning objectives identified.
These post-workshop impact reports help you easily track the success of your investment. The report can then be used to evidence outcomes of specific funding allocations.
What schools say about Learning Performance
“It was brilliant. Really well planned and organised sessions. We would definitely recommend the programme to other school leaders. The perception from senior leadership was extremely positive. The pupils were able to take a lot away from the sessions”
Paul Cooper Progress Leader – Year 10 Aylesford School
“Fabulous workshops. They’ve made a huge impact on our students. They have been very stretched, challenged and entertained!”
