Word and Number Skills for Educators

“The two days with Beth were insightful and thought-provoking. The fact that the information was delivered with lots of practical tasks and opportunities to use the mentoring in practice was incredibly useful. I came out far more confident about my own abilities in leading and mentoring a group of peers!”

Aims of the course

The Jumpstarting™ Process underscores a visual approach that educates students on developing and controlling their utilisation of mental imagery for words. Beyond bolstering mental imagery skills, the system assists in:  

  • Helping students’ entry into an effective learning state.  
  • Unveiling students’ internal mental processes, aiding their comprehension of individual learning strategies.  
  • Fostering metacognition by pinpointing strengths and refining ineffective strategies to foster greater academic success. 

The Jumpstarting™ Process is tailored to augment your conventional phonics program. Our exemplary session plans proffer insights into integrating the Jumpstarting™ Process both as an intervention tactic and in mainstream classrooms, especially for Reception and Early Years classes. 

Intended outcomes

Bridge the gap for students who are struggling with the current phonics or maths programs
