Overview

Course overview

A successful transition from primary to secondary can have a positive impact on a young person’s experience of school and learning for many years to come.  While the new stage of life in Year 7 can be an exciting period for many, for others it can bring about feelings of uncertainty or anxiety. And given the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on education, most children will have missed out on almost two years of socialising with teachers and peers at primary school, impacting their social development. That’s why it’s essential that children are well supported and prepared for this major milestone.

So how can primary schools prepare young people for this significant transition?

Providing the underpinning theory on why strong transitions are essential to support children and young people in their development, the course equips you with essential skills and knowledge and deepens your understanding of what high quality transition looks like.
