Successful students approach their studies with the right behaviours, skills and attitudes: they understand how to learn and revise effectively, they're determined and organised, they give more discretionary effort and they get top results. Success at A level is a result of character, not intelligence.

The A Level Mindset Student Workbook offers students a structured way to work through the 40 activities in The A Level Mindset (ISBN 9781785830242) by Steve Oakes and Martin Griffin. It coaches students to develop the key characteristics which will help them be successful at A level: vision, effort, systems, practice and attitude. With space for students to record and reflect on their answers, along with plenty of advice for improvement and self-development based on the authors' experience as heads of a successful sixth form, the student workbook is an essential tool to help students with their time management, commitment, motivation and study habits -- which will ultimately help them achieve.

Sold in packs of 25, the workbook sets are ideally suited for A level class teachers, and heads of sixth forms or colleges, who want their classes to benefit from the A level mindset and are using The A Level Mindset.

Suitable for teachers, tutors, heads of sixth form or anyone else who wants to help A level students achieve their potential, The A Level Mindset offers 40 easy-to-use activities to develop students' resilience, commitment, buoyancy, motivation and determination. It could be your key to transforming student outcomes.
