Keys to Success

The Keys to Success program is available as:

*An R Unit: see teacher librarians for more information about how this works.

*Just in time: make an appointment with a teacher librarian to walk you through any session/s you need!

*Webinars: access when it suits you (see below).

These sessions are delivered by LTC’s teacher librarians – your research experts. Hone your key academic skills at school AND from home!

The sessions provide you with the key skills required to achieve your best outcomes while studying.

Student feedback, “Keys to Success”:

 “Not only does it teach you skills for school, but it teaches you skills for life. “

Mum made me come to the first session but it was actually quite helpful…other sessions have helped with my work despite the fact that I knew a lot about the content covered.
