Advice needed: how to deliver learning support workshops

Discussion in 'Further Education' started by jackw, Jul 29, 2011.

  1. Has anyone got any advice on how to deliver learning support through workshops? We're being encouraged to go down this route rather than individual learning support sessions in order to save money but we have struggled when we've tried it before. Here are some of the models we're contemplating:
    1. Advertise single sessions, for example on punctuation or percentages and let anyone come. How would we claim funding for that? What if no one comes?
    2. Have regular open sessions for anyone to drop in and get help with whatever they want. We've tried this one before and we either got no one (waste of teacher time) or too many for one teacher to manage (because they all wanted different things).
    3. Have regular sessions but students can only come once we've interviewed them and allocated them a specific day/time. Do we mix students from different levels and with different needs in single sessions (difficult to manage?) or restrict sessions to similar students? What's the difference between that and a small group anyway?

    Any ideas will be gratefully received. Thank you : )
