Making an Effective Transition to Second Level - Coping with Change

Making an Effective Transition to Second-Level: Coping with Change


Webinar for teachers and parents of 6th class pupils/ In-coming First Year Students

Date: Monday 16th May 2022 at 7pm

Transitioning to second-level is a key life change - how 6th class pupils adapt to their new secondary school matters and has lasting consequences. The evidence points to preparation being key to young adolescents coping with change at an organisational, learning and personal development level. The objective of this important webinar is to highlight these changes and to facilitate a conversation which will enable teachers and parents to support and develop resilient young people and give them tools to be ready to cope with change as they transition from primary to second-level.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar participants will:

1.       Be aware of the need to prepare 6th class pupils for the transition to 2nd level

2.       Be familiar with evidence supporting the need for preparation, including Irish pupils’ video testimonies

3.       Identify, recognize and understand key changes the child will experience.

4.       Have explored ways to help the child cope with change.

5.       Be aware of useful resources to support the child through this key life change.
