Student Training
At AST, we firmly believe that students need to be involved intimately with their learning. This means that they should develop an awareness of how they learn most effectively and develop ways to exploit their strengths in order to raise their achievement and attainment. We also believe that students should be constructively encouraged to tackle their weaknesses and become "fully-rounded" learners in preparation for their future roles in the world of work. In order to do this, students need to develop an appreciation of preferred learning styles. As part of the EnCompass programme, AST offers student training to accomplish these goals.

All students taking part in the Learning Styles Audit will be given access to the Students' Guide to EnCompass. The guide is designed to introduce them to EnCompass and the basics of preferred learning styles theories. It is written in a clear, straightforward style and contains appropriate examples and diagrams as well as many strategies for applying their own preferred style to their studies. The guide has an extensive section on revision techniques targeted at each of the four EnCompass Learning Directions.

In addition to the Students' Guide, AST can deliver workshops with groups of students, which aim to develop their self-awareness as learners through real-world examples of EnCompass Profiles.
