RESEARCH FOCUS: understanding and helping to overcome exam anxiety

About: Exam anxiety is real. For many students, the experience of preparing for and taking high pressure exams, such as GCSEs, is fraught with anxiety. This has only worsened following the 2014 reforms to GCSEs and for some, it can have a lasting impact both academically and emotionally. As more and more students ask for help in order to cope, this webinar will help senior leaders, academic heads and wellbeing leads to understand the reasons why.

Best Evidence In Brief

In partnership with the Institute for Effective Education (IEE)

In April 2019, The National College entered into a partnership with the Institute for Effective Education to provide their ‘Best Evidence in Brief’ roundup in video format; focusing on stories with practical implications for schools and policy makers, including only high quality research from around the world. As part of this initiative, The National College will then host a webinar focusing on a research topic featured in the BEIB which will feature in the ‘Research Focus’ webinar series for School Leaders.
