Supporting Student Re‑engagement
A liberating process to empower disengaged students (feat. CCS Cards)
The Supporting Student Re‑engagement course provides educators, school counsellors, and learning support professionals, with a liberating process to help reach school students who have become disengaged in their learning environment.
Delivered as 3×90-mins live virtual sessions and 3×30mins one-on-one coaching sessions, participants will learn and practice a process of re-engaging students through self-discovery, applying values as strengths, and goal achievement. The course addresses essential aspects of motivation, engagement, and self-understanding. Learning enhancement is facilitated by several powerful applications of CCS Cards.
A key ingredient of the course is the opportunity for guided practice with the tools and processes during the sessions and the three one-to-one coaching sessions that will help you confidently integrate the approach into your specific context with your students.
All course participants receive a guide book and a set of CCS Cards and templates.
The Supporting Student Re‑engagement course is presented in partnership between CCS Corporation and MBL Consultancy.
