Time Management

Time Management is the key to success. 

It is a skill that is continually developing as our lives adjust to daily demands. You might suddenly find that your world is very busy; you may be having difficulty working out how and what to prioritise. Or the complete opposite may be true.  You might feel that since you have started college it feels like you have loads of time on your hands. You might even miss the structure of second level.  

During the Time Management session, the tutor will explore different strategies for planning your time. This will involve setting clear goals for the division of your time and helping you to break these goals into achievable steps. Reviewing your progress and learning to prioritise will help you to gain insight into how to achieve the study/work/social life balance.
