Accountability and study skills
The success leader will work with students to create a study plan and ensure they are staying on top of their workload.
Students are taught by a leader to revise or prepare for a topic. Our sessions are based on the syllabus. More details below.
Each week students will practice assessment questions with a minimum of 30 minutes dedicated students writing in exam conditions.
About the program
Dedicated study hours, high achieving, passionate success leaders
and a collaborative and supportive environment.
There are so many words people use to describe success in the HSC and we love a good vocabulary list, however as soon as term 4 of 2019 starts, the HSC calls ACTION! It begins with a large amount of work and, like a film, it has the climactic events of the Half Yearly’s, Trials, Major Works and finally the dénouement; the HSC Exams. Set to Study has developed strategies to help each student achieve their goals and be calm and prepared for the HSC. We do this through small groups, as when students collaborate, they can help motivate each other throughout their final year.
Time management, organisation, motivation, stress and other elements of study can be challenging for students. This is why Set to Study doesn’t just focus on the completion of assignments. We believe effort needs to go into improving the student as a whole so they have the best chance at success. We want them to look back on their journey knowing they have grown and gained skills that can last them a lifetime. Whilst students are striving for success, there are many internal and external pressures which can hinder a student’s ability to focus. This is why Set to Study uses mentorship to support students on their individual approach to achieving the best possible outcome.
Our interactive learning hour is based on the W english advanced syllabus. During the hour the students will be encouraged to voice their opinions and ask any questions they have about a topic. The aims of the session are to provide students with the opportunity to develop their understanding of the topics, create revision notes and most importantly improve their confidence when speaking about ideas. To find out more about the 3 hour class you can view our term schedule PDF document below or enquire via email.
Keeping parents updated
At the end of every session parents will automatically be emailed a session note. In the session note there will be a general overview of what content the success leader taught, upcoming assignments and any English homework that has been set. The leaders will monitor students rate of completion in relation to homework and assessments to ensure they are studying in a way which is productive and efficient.
Our success leaders will mentor, tutor and guide each student through to the completion of the HSC. Success leaders are graduates from recent years who have achieved an ATAR above 95 who have a passion for sharing their knowledge and experience with others. Their ability to relate to students enhances the mentor process and provides a connection between the leader and the student.
Any student or parent who is interested in our Success Class is encouraged to meet with our mentor Jemima for a Success Class strategy session. This session can be taken anytime prior to booking or after booking the students place in our Success Class. During the session Jemima will make a motivation assessment to understand how to student approaches their studies. Jemima will also discuss how the Success Classes work and answer any questions the student may have about our Year 12 English Advanced Success Class. The information will be provided to the student and parent. The assessment will also be provided to the Success Class leader after they confirm their placement in the class.
