This is the time of year when we start to get nice and soggy round the edges, all thinking about our Christmas preparations and new year parties etc. The examination period for schools is on the go all the time but it tends to wind down for a little while during the autumn term. The nativity plays and performances take over for most of the second half of the term and children particularly find it hard to concentrate on the job in hand. Teachers and lecturers keep everyone in check though.
When you leave formal education and go out into the world of work and careers, there isn’t a teacher or lecturer at the front of the classroom ensuring that you keep to your revision and homework timetables. When you attend training or take up e learning later in life, you need to set your own parameters to ensure you make the most of every opportunity – whatever the time of year.
