November seems to be the month of remembering! We have the thrills of bonfire night, “remember, remember, the 5th of November.” Then we have Remembrance Day, remembering past, present and future armed services men and women, who sacrifice for our freedom. The poppy is a symbol of hope, and peace. It helps us remember the freedoms we have. ‘We will remember them!’
The greater or toughest part of education is remembering. Your programme is about learning knowledge, and applying what you learn. The most effective people are those who can remember or recall what they have learned.
Using the chart below, you can establish with your tutor how well you are learning. Naturally, we invite all to work towards being fluent, or distinction level in all aspects of your programmes. This is the primary responsibility of the apprentice. However, your tutor and employer play a significant role too!
Please collaborate with your tutor to ensure you are learning regularly, and that you have effective methods of revision, recall and therefore impact!
A final aspect of remembering is remembering who we are and who we can become. Self-worth or self-esteem can be increasingly hard, but we are as strong or as weak as we want to be. If self-esteem is lacking, there is always support! At Achieving Excellence, we want all learners, colleagues, and associates to remember they are special, unique and talented. Remember that!
