School Library Association - Supporting Your Sixth Form Students

Sixth form students may be aspiring to apprenticeships, technical qualifications or higher education. However the learning environment of the sixth form is very different to the lower school and students have to learn to adopt independent learning practices and manage their time more effectively. There are new skills to develop in critical thinking, digital, media and information literacy. This transition also places pressure on the mental health and wellbeing of students. All of these changes mean that the 6th form librarian has to accommodate a different skill set and provide a service and resources more suited to individual student needs. This course will cover the issues highlighted.
