Give your students the tools, knowledge and self-confidence to become successful independent learners.
With a constantly evolving curriculum and a growing need for the development of broader life skills, here’s a real opportunity for schools to deliver targeted support that can make a profound difference to students’ prospects.
Veema can help
Our Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 masterclasses are designed to support students through some of the most important years of school life. They carefully complement the curriculum, encouraging students to discover and employ the skills they need to become enthusiastic learners, self managers, reflective enquirers and creative thinkers.
Veema’s masterclasses support students at every stage — from transitioning successfully into secondary education, to making considered GCSE, AS and A-level choices, and preparing for the rigours of Higher Education.
Accessible, practical support
All our masterclasses run for two hours and are delivered to small groups in your school by experienced practitioners. We use a variety of techniques to suit different learning styles and provide teaching resources that will help students to reflect on their experience and develop further in the days and weeks to come.
We also offer completely bespoke masterclasses to meet schools’ specific requirements. Ask us for more information.

Our Student Masterclasses
The Habits of an Effective Learner
The masterclass reviews highly effective study habits that promises to support pupils in the classroom and when learning independently. Drawing on the science behind how we learn best and the learning brain, our habits show pupils how to put into practice strategies for ecoming better learners. It is a powerful booster in preparing pupils for the demands of KS 4 and beyond.

Planning to Achieve Outstanding Exam Results
How do you convert GCSE and A-Level exams into exercises that showcase, not just test, your knowledge and confidence? Here KS4 or KS5 students master the tricks of the trade. Like taking time to super-save time, putting your all into customising revision, and making memory your cheat sheet.
Our masterclasses give students the support they need as they face new and significant challenges.
Students quickly become engaged in the Key Stage targeted sessions, learn new skills and discover how to related them to real-life situations.
We supply a teaching resource pack that enable students to review and reflect on the experience.
Reflective masterclass package
In addition to our masterclass sessions we offer a package designed to create even greater impact and see the benefits for longer. Before the masterclasses commence we start the day with a dynamic presenter-led assembly introducing students to their masterclass and preparing them for the day ahead. It’s fun, fully interactive and engaging including up-to-date information in neuroscience — how learning helps the brain grow and learning strategies to boost performance and refers to the work of Dr. Carol Dweck ‘Growth Mindsets’. We’ll also leave you with a teaching resource pack (teacher presentation slides and printable student tasks that can be used during tutor period, PSHCE or independent learning time). The resources will be based on the masterclass ensuring students continue to reflect on their experiences and reap the rewards for months to come.
