The VESPA Mindset Workbook
By Steve Oakes, Martin Griffin
In The VESPA Mindset Workbook: 40 activities for FE students that transform commitment, motivation and productivity, Steve Oakes and Martin Griffin share a collection of practical activities designed to boost college students' positivity, resilience and organisation.
Success at college is a result of character, not intelligence. 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.
The VESPA Mindset Workbook offers students a structured way to work through 40 activities designed to help them develop the five key traits and behaviours crucial to academic success: vision, effort, systems, practice and attitude (VESPA).
Each activity has been prepared with a student audience in mind, takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and allows space for students to record and reflect on their answers and to structure their thinking. Furthermore, the activities have been categorised thematically under the VESPA umbrella and offer supplementary advice for improvement and self-development based on the authors' experience of working with post-16 students.
Rooted in theory and tried and tested in practice, this essential workbook will enable students to break through barriers, build resilience, better manage their workload and release their potential.
Sold in packs of 25, the workbook sets are ideally suited for college tutors who want their students to benefit from the VESPA mindset.
