This course explores the concept of metacognition and self-regulated learning. Based on the latest educational research, the course focuses on what is meant by self-regulated learning and how the interplay of knowledge (self, strategies and motivation), planning, monitoring and evaluation determine a successful approach to learning. Throughout the course, participants will consider the barriers to self-regulated learning and various strategies that can develop metacognitive skills in their learners.

We have funding of £150 available for maintained schools in North and West Yorkshire, bringing the cost down from £185 to only £35. Please note that the full amount of £185 will be invoiced, however the £150 will then be refunded after the course through a TRP payment. Please contact for further details or questions about eligibility.
