Study Survival

Secondary school group work programme


While other similar courses focus on tips for studying, the Study Survival programme helps young people understand their personal learning style. This is in addition to gaining an insight into ways of managing the physical, emotional and mental impact of stress created by their studies and/or exams.

By focusing on learning styles and approaches, this programme offers a more holistic approach to managing stress. Addressing the emotional, physical and mental impacts means students are able to apply what they have learned across their studies.
