This blog is a little different to my previous ones, I think they call it reader participation. I would love you to reflect on the questions below and maybe give some advice to other readers.
When THAT letter drops through your letter box inviting us to attend a Standards Check how do you feel? I know that I have had several Checks and sat many exams in my lifetime and that initial feeling is always the same.
So, how or what do you do to calm your nerves? If you were giving advice as if to someone else what would you say?
Most of our students feel the same about driving tests, what advice do you give them? Is it the same as you would give yourself or something different?
Where once upon a time my worry was mainly about MY performance, I am now more concerned about the needs of my student and how they may cope in a similar situation. By understanding ourselves we can have a better understanding of others, and therefore help them to become more aware of themselves. How do you go about achieving this?
Please feel free to leave a comment below, I would be interested in your thoughts.
