Our study skills day will be ran by Enda O’Doherty; teacher, Ironman, comedian, and motivational speaker who delivers a powerful seminar on how to motivate students to engage in proactive study methods to reach their potential.

We will also review how technology can aid students to study better and become more organised.
Each student will also get a free 12 month subscription to StudyClix.ie, this will allow them to access online study materials for the year ahead.

My son found the course interesting both in terms of Assistive Technology and the students attending it. It made him realise that there are many people who have similar disabilities which can be overcome.
My daughter did the course last summer, she found the camp excellent and it has given her a new-found confidence in technology. Also another bonus is she made some great friends who she keeps in contact with.
Thanks so much for the Study Skills camp on Wednesday. It has prepared both me and Jasmine for what she needs for secondary school.
Firstly thanks to James and his very enthusiastic team. My son Sam attended the course in UCD and really enjoyed it. It has given him a self-confidence in his ability that I haven't seen before.
My daughter attended the study skills day in UCC last Friday. She enjoyed it and learned a lot. The parents session was so informative, I learned a lot myself. James is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. Thank you James
