    Peak Performance - what sports psychology can teach us about exams

    Sport is all about timing, ensuring you reach peak at just the right moment and can perform under high pressure. Exams are like this too - you need to reach your peak at just the right moment and not allow the pressure to get to you. So what can sports psychology teach us about exams? This week Rhys Davies talks about his career as an International Double Canoe Slalom competitor and we think about how his research in sports psychology and mental health might translate into classroom practice.

Very useful listening for all teachers!

This podcasts offers very current and topical content for all teachers. I learn so much from every one I listen to. It is a great form of CPD that staff will engage with too.

A much needed podcast

You can hear at once how passionate Lucinda is - and, although this is aimed primarily at teachers, I - as a parent - found it hugely helpful. Her mix of psychology & teaching in her background makes me really interested, & trust, in what she has to say. She’s also really easy to listen to even on complex research based topics.
