  • Our education framework corresponds to the work of the Partnership for 21st Century Learning. The framework we use recognises the importance of developing life and career skills.
  • The earlier they start to develop these skills and understand how important they are, the more chance they have to lead an extraordinary life full of passion and purpose. Our courses help children do that.
  • Our ‘Learning to Fly’ courses are designed to help children develop the 4Cs – creative problem solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. The earlier they start to develop these skills and understand how important they are, the more chance they have to lead an extraordinary life full of passion and purpose.
  • The 5th ‘Mastery’ module is designed as our ‘graduation’ course for children who have completed all four courses. This course pulls together all of the strands from the previous four courses and gives children a set of tools and a process for understanding how they can find ways to use all of the life skills that they have been taught on a daily basis.
  • A 45-minute Parent Class webinar and three follow-up videos to help embed the skills learnt on the course.

  • Why is Leadership important?

    Leadership is being able to support, encourage and motivate others to achieve a shared goal. It’s also about having a positive impact on others, in any context. One of the most important qualities in order to do this is a high level of empathy and emotional intelligence. In order to work with and lead others, we must first learn to identify and understand our own emotions, strengths and weaknesses. This self-awareness allows us to make our own best contribution and our empathy allows us to recognise the feelings, needs and strengths of others. This level of emotional awareness is an essential skill for building any type of relationship or interaction, whether with family, friends, peers, or work colleagues.

  • What does the course focus on and what activities will the children complete?

    The course is designed to develop an awareness of what great leadership looks like and why. The week includes fun activities which encourage the children to explore different ways of working together and leading others. They will be encouraged to reflect on the power of connection, listening and developing trust and respect amongst the people you lead. Specific activities include exploring leadership language, taking it in turns to lead the team in completing timed challenges and leading the team to create different shapes with a rope while they are blindfolded.

  • What can my child expect the course to be like?

    Fast-paced, high energy and challenging. Your child will be active and moving around for most of the week. None of the tasks are easy; in fact, we don’t mind if the children struggle with many of the exercises at the first attempt. It’s through this process that resilience and strength of character can be built in a fun, pressure-free environment.

    A big part of our Role Models courses is about building confidence, thinking skills and independence. We would like to request that parents and carers leave their children with us for the hours of the course each day rather than staying at the school. As I’m sure you can appreciate, this allows for a much different experience and the children are encouraged to really grow their independence.

  • What type of child is the course designed for?

    Our courses are not designed specifically for children who struggle with leadership, we believe everyone should be developing this important life skill. Perhaps your child has great leadership potential but lacks the opportunity to demonstrate and develop it further. The course is a great opportunity for someone who may already be a ‘natural leader’ but needs to develop their empathy and ability to understand the impact of their actions on others.  Developing the skills of collaborating and communicating with others can boost general self-confidence and self-awareness. The course is also a great way for children to explore being outside of their comfort zone within a fun environment.

  • Who delivers the course?

    All courses are led by our top Role Models; all of whom are passionate about character education and trained in our unique content. 

    The quality of our Role Models is paramount to the success of our courses so we recruit people who inspire children. All of our Role Models undergo a rigorous application procedure and we are totally focused on recruiting people who are talented, engaging & fun. With academics, professional sportsmen and women, actors and musicians, we have a variety of personalities to suit every child and our Role Models are young enough for children to connect with. We look for people who celebrate unique thinking and resilience; whilst ensuring that a holiday course should, above all things, be a lot of serious fun.

    “The positive feedback he received really boosted his confidence and on holiday he was not phased by asking staff for something whereas previously he would ask us to do it.”

    “She has been a lot more tolerant & better at problem solving in a mature manner especially with her younger sister.”

    “She seems more confident about attending senior school interviews and has said that the course really helped her to prepare.”

    “She said she wished school was like this. She absolutely loved it. Thank you.”

    “I love the detailed feedback for him and what you were able to get from him.”
