Education workshops for schools and colleges

We are delighted to offer education-focused workshops for school and college groups, with the below themes. We are able to deliver these workshops in your school or college, or welcome you to campus. You can find more information about each of these sessions on our website at the link below. If you have any questions, or would like to book in for a workshop, please email visitus@marjon.ac.uk.

BA (Hons) Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies - Working with disabled people and those with Special Educational Needs

This interactive workshop introduces you to the way that we can work with disabled people and those with special educational needs in a friendly and inclusive way. Many of us will be involved in working with disabled people regardless of the particular context of the setting. We will explore the answers to fundamental questions, such as:

  • how are disabled people represented in the media?
  • how did disabled people fare during the COVID-19 pandemic?

We will finish the session by briefly looking at the Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies programme here at Plymouth Marjon University.

BA (Hons) Primary Education - What are children learning in school?

This workshop deals with the informal, hidden curriculum. So, whilst an answer to this question would typically be the various core and foundation subjects, there is always a lot more going on. In this workshop, we explore these other aspects of learning, looking at how school curriculum and school ethos can promote a range of critical skills for lifelong learning. As part of this, we will see how effective practice takes account of wider aspects of learning (critical thinking, collaboration, development of resilience, etc.), using the formal curriculum experience to enhance these skills. 

BA (Hons) Early Childhood - Play Based Learning and the Early Years Foundation Stage

This workshop explores the ways in which Early Years Teachers and Practitioners can promote learning through play-based approaches. We will explore the multi-faceted ways that adults develop children's thinking, knowledge, understanding and skills in a holistic context. Exploring enjoyable and engaging approaches to teaching early maths and literacy to diverse groups of children using creative and play-based approaches.
