Roy Leighton (Independent Thinking)

The presentation given by Roy Leighton on Making a Difference was translated into a visual representation by an artist and graphic recorder Sally Pennycate.

 Summary of The Butterfly Model methodology:

Making a Difference - a visual representation by Sally Pennycate

This illustration complements Roy's teachings as it was created during the presentation playing to the kinaesthetic and visual styles of learning as well as providing an excellent memory tool after the event.
Illustrating to record information is a powerful tool that requires few artistic skills just the ability to use simple seed shapes and images to make a pictorial representation.
Sally delivers workshops guiding others to create their own visual representation of a lesson or lecture so it can be easily assimilated and remembered.

The You Choose Bronze Award is our entry level programme specifically targeting those not engaged or at risk of disengagement from mainstream education.  It is a 60 hour Award, made up of 3-hour personalised challenges. There is no restriction as to the curriculum content so it can be used to accredit any informal development of skills and activities.

This programme develops self confidence and self esteem in learners who have encountered barriers to their learning.  This can now delivered with the Award of Personal Effectiveness (AoPE) ‘built in’ which, as well as offering excellent differentiation, offers the equivalent of half a GCSE.  This programme is available in a paper-based or online format.
