This programmes will explore the research evidence around cognitive science and how this helps us to understand how pupils learn. We will then look at how this can be used to shape an evidence-informed approach to teaching.

Who is it aimed at?

Leaders in primary and secondary schools responsible for teaching and learning.

What will be covered?

  • Developing a shared understanding of cognitive science and memory.
  • Applying principles of cognitive science and memory to curriculum, teaching and assessment.
  • Practical case studies from both primary and secondary.
  • Support with implementation of interventions.

What will you know/​be able to do by the end of the programme?

  • Articulate the principles of cognitive science and memory.
  • Describe and demonstrate tangible interventions based on these principles.
  • Develop a clear implementation plan on the aspects of cognitive science/​memory most relevant to your context.

What will be the potential impact on teachers and pupils as a result of this training?

  • Leaders, and therefore teachers, will gain a deeper understanding of cognitive science and load theory.
  • As a result teachers will have an understanding of how the brain acquires/​uses information and strategies that can be used to support memory.
  • Subsequently teachers will be better informed to embed durable learning, resulting in improved pupil outcomes.
