Learning Performance Workshops


Our Seniors’ were joined by Steve “the speaker with the orange tie” Beckles-Ebusua this term who led them in a series of learning performance workshops. Steve is an International speaker as well as an official keynote speaker and workshop provider for the London School of Economics as well as Kings College London amongst others. Steve, (and his orange tie), has become a regular speaker at St. Ed’s and his engaging style of presentation has helped all of our seniors’ over the past few years.

This term, he led workshops in Memory Matters with Form 9, Get Fit for Exams with Form 10 and Plan, Review, Succeed with Form 11, covering points of interest including how your brain thinks; the philosophy for memorising; how to be imaginative, creative and logical in exams as well as how to get rid of revision! Concluding the afternoon, Steve commented, “by understanding how we learn, we can learn more effectively, making our work more productive rather than longer.” Thank you Steve, we look forward to seeing you, and your orange tie, in the very near future.
