Below are services TailoredPractice provides as part of embedding mindsets and brain-based practice throughout the whole school. A customised and comprehensive approach.
Guidance on how to train staff and infuse growth mindset, character strengths and brain-based learning into the long-term school culture and climate. This includes an assessment of school programmes and policies, such as observations and report writing, as well as creating assemblies and signage for the school that promote its ethos.
Professional development sessions and coaching for staff to better understand, apply and practise the concepts and research about mindsets, the brain and character in order to maximise student success and wellbeing. Action research programme to guide teacher-led research over the long term.

On-going or one-off facilitation of evidence-based workshops that are bespoke for your school. For example, TailoredPractice will customise activities for form tutors, whole or half-day drop days for a year group or curriculum that will be embedded in subject teaching, such as:
Mindsets for Success: Perseverance, Challenge and the Value of Mistakes
How the Brain Learns and Getting Out Your Comfort Zone
Making it Stick: How to Revise, Memorise and Learn for the Long Term
Mindsets for Moving Up: Strategies for Making the Transition to Secondary School (for Years 5 and 6)
Workshops for parents to introduce the research about mindsets, the brain and character and give them specific, proven strategies to help their children apply more effective effort to their learning—to challenge themselves when something is too easy and to persevere when learning is tough.
"I went to see Carol Dweck . . . . This was also an excellent day and gave me a fascinating insight into how growth mindsets works in all walks of life. However it didn’t give me the practical steps needed to apply these skills in school. Your course did just that! I came away buzzing and have already written by timeline for implementation in my school.
