Found it very useful linking in the cognitive functions and considering how we would come up with the principles and then bridge those.”

Instrumental Enrichment (FIE) Standard Level 1 (5 instruments)
5 day Certificate Course for teachers, lecturers, psychologists, parents and support staff working in Primary, Special, Secondary and Further Education

Reuven Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment is a cognitive intervention programme which causes significant and powerful gains in student learning and achievement.

More than 1500 studies with a wide range of learner populations from countries around the world attest to the power of Feuerstein's methods in increasing students' cognitive performance, academic achievement and emotional intelligence.

IE provides an intensive and rigorous training programme that prepares the teacher or helper to correct deficiencies in fundamental thinking skills, provides students with the concepts, skills, strategies, operations and techniques necessary to function as independent learners, increases their motivation, develops students’ metacognition, and helps students learn how to learn and how to transfer learning.

FIE materials are organised into 4 instruments that comprise a series of pen and paper tasks, that increase in difficulty, are independent of content in any subject area and target the development of cognitive functions that are readily transferable to all educational and everyday life situations.

The course consists of 4 Instruments or units of work:

Organisation of Dots: learning how to inhibit impulsiveness, to plan, be systematic, develop strategies and be precise and accurate.

Orientation in Space 1: perceiving and projecting spatial relationships which leads to an understanding of interpersonal relationships. Reducing egocentricity and developing empathy, increasing flexibility of thinking and representational thinking.

Comparisons: learning to develop spontaneous comparative behaviour.

Analytic Perception: learning to divide wholes into component parts and constructing wholes by projecting the relationships between the parts. Developing an analytic approach to life.
