Characteristics of Effective Learning and Schemas (03 Jun 2023)


Characteristics of Effective Learning and Schemas

Please ignore the advertised date.  We are currently gauging interest for this course. Plese join the waiting list to register your interest and we will be in touch once a date is confirmed. 

Course Aim: This introductory course offers an overview of the characteristics of effective learning and schemas.

Course Information: The EYFS defines characteristics of effective learning as

  • Playing and exploring - children investigate and experience things and 'have a go'
  • Active learning - children concentrate and keep trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
  • Creating and thinking critically - children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas and develop strategies for doing things

How children learn is just as important as what children are learning. This course will provide guidance for practitioners about what the characteristics are and how we can use them effectively when reflecting on the quality of children’s learning. A schema is a pattern of repeated actions and the awareness of schemas will help practitioners describe how children approach their learning.  The role of the adult is critical in observing, identifying and understanding the 3 key characteristics and children’s fascinations to gain a better awareness of how to enable children to become lifelong learners.

Suitable ForAny Early Years Practitioners     

Delivered by: Kate Beevers who is a qualified teacher with over 25 years experience of working with children and their families: in Schools, Early Years settings, and as an Adult Education tutor.
