Managing transition - How to help junior and senior students
Date: March 15, 2018
Audience: it will be of interest to those working in prep schools, as well as those running houses in senior schools taking new boarders at age 11 or 13, and senior managers responsible for the induction of new boarders in senior schools.
Why should you attend? This workshop will consider relevant developmental issues, the nature and demands of the transition, and the importance of effective management of the induction process. It will provide an opportunity to better understand the roles of staff in prep and senior schools and explore what strategies and approaches can best be used to help you to help students during such challenging times. We will utilise case studies to explore the key issues and consider the best solutions.
