Building a Growth Mindset

Children who are lacking in confidence often don’t feel good about themselves, are self-critical and tend to focus on their failures rather than their successes. Learning how to develop a growth mindset allows us to step outside our comfort zone, experience new things and become more confident in who we are.

This course uses the power of story and fun, creative activities to help children believe in themselves. Brilliant ‘Billy the Bunny’ accompanies the children throughout the week to help them navigate their emotions in a fun and supportive environment.

Designed to help your child feel confident

Brilliant Me & My Confidence is specifically designed to help your child:

  • Learn to like themselves and feel confident
  • Feel liked and accepted
  • Feel proud of what they can do
  • Think good things about themselves
  • Believe in themselves

Course Breakdown Questions

Please read below for a summary of our COVID-19 Policy or click here to read it in full.

At Role Models, our priority is the welfare of our students and staff. We have therefore put strict health & safety policies in place to minimise risks related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

These are in compliance with guidelines published by Public Health England and include:

  • Any student or staff member joining the course must already have been in the UK for at least 14 days before the course and must be completely symptom free
  • Family members or carers visiting our courses to pick up or drop off children must comply with latest regulations stated by Public Health England at the point of their visit, otherwise they cannot be permitted on site
  • All children will have their temperature taken when entering the site
  • Additional personal hygiene practices will be put into place during our courses. This will include the thorough washing of hands at regular intervals throughout the day and any resources being disinfected
  • Children will be separated into groups no larger than 10 and will not mix with any other children or staff members
  • Appropriate social distancing will be adhered too, including at collection/drop off. Course activities will allow for children to maintain the advised distance apart
  • Staff and children will be sent home immediately if anyone is suspected of having Coronavirus symptoms

In the event of any course being cancelled on the advice of Public Health England or insufficient booking numbers, your booking will be refunded in full. Alternatively, you will have the option to transfer your booking to a future offline course or one of our online courses.

How has the course content been adapted?

We have adapted our group activities so that no direct physical contact between children is required (hand holding, physical partner work etc). Parents and children should be aware that our course content is based on team challenges and ‘working together’ to apply specific life skills; our courses will continue to focus on this approach and children will be working within a group of 10.

Each day a story is shared based around the theme of confidence. Then, creative activities help the children link the learning from the story to their own everyday lives. Daily mindfulness activities are included to help the children learn to manage their emotions, as well as a daily ‘mission’ which is a simple task to help them embed their learning. Brilliant ‘Billy the Bunny’ accompanies the children throughout the week and is used to help the children talk about how they feel. Discussing certain situations Billy might lack confidence in can sometimes be an easier step than talking directly about our own experiences.

The stories shared in The Brilliant Me & My Confidence course are based around the following themes:

    1. Different ways to show confidence
    2. Being awesome
    3. What do I like about myself?
    4. Finding my big voice
    5. Doing things I might not be good at

One example of the stories shared during the week is the charming ‘Perfectly Norman’ by Tom Percival. This is described as a bold and uplifting book about daring to be different and having the courage to dance to your own tune. The story is shared and discussed as a group, followed by an activity to explore what we often try and hide about our own personalities. The children make their own pair of ‘wonderful wings’ decorating them with all the things that make them special.

Fun and fast paced learning! There will be a mixture of games, stories, and activities all delivered by Role Models who are experienced with working with this age range of children. There will be breaks built into the structure of the day including a 30 minute play during the lunch break.

Our courses are built on three elements:

  • Active learning 
  • Ambitious content
  • Serious fun

Sometimes we all feel different things….worried, angry, frustrated or not very confident. These feelings are all totally normal and there are great things you can learn to help you when you feel like these feelings are too big.

You are going to listen to some stories, play some games and learn new things to help you feel your happiest, most confident and BRILLIANT self.

  • 5 x 5 hour days
  • A group of around 10 children will be led by an inspirational Role Model
  • You can wear comfortable clothes and have a drink nearby in case you need it
  • It will be a fun week of talking, thinking, listening to stories and drawing/creating
  • We would love you tell us your ideas and feelings during the activities, so talking is encouraged! But if there’s anything you don’t want to do, that is fine too!
  • We can’t wait to meet you and learn some awesome new skills together!

This course is not designed just for children who struggle with confidence; we believe everyone should be developing this important life skill. Even if your child seems confident, the stories and concepts shared throughout the week allow them to really understand the importance of believing in yourself. Working within a group using the skills of collaborating and communicating is a great way to boost general self-confidence and self-awareness. The course is also an opportunity for children to explore being outside of their comfort zone within a fun and supportive environment.

  • Parent presentation – we invite parents and carers to attend a 45-minute ‘Parent Presentation’ usually on the first day of the course at 10am. This includes an overview of what your child will learn, together with ideas and strategies for supporting their learning at home. Please note that due to the current circumstances, we may send out a pre-recorded webinar version of this instead
  • End of day email – these emails summarise what your child covered so you can discuss this with them. They may also include photos of your child taking part if consent has been given
  • Top tips – daily tips from Louise, our Head of Character Education, on how parents and carers can support the development of life skills at home
  • Written report – parents receive a written report from the Role Model working with their child, highlighting their child’s strengths and areas for further development, which includes ideas and strategies for supporting their child at home
  • Follow-up videos – three videos from Louise and ‘Billy the Bunny’, sent after the course has been completed to remind your child of the key course themes

Parents will also be sent a list of all the story books shared throughout the course; you may wish to purchase any of the titles which have particularly resonated with your child to help revisit the themes.

The Role Models Life Skills programme includes 8 different courses for children in Years 1-6 (ages 5-7 & 8-11). These separate courses can be completed in any order, or on their own.

Our courses follow an education framework developed by teachers, education experts and business leaders. This framework, based on the work of the Partnership for 21st century learning, defines the skills and knowledge that children need to thrive at school, at home and beyond. Our courses have been written by our Character Education team who are highly qualified educators. Our course content emphasises the importance of developing life and career skills alongside academic attainment. You can read more about the other courses which we offer here and you can read more about the partnership for 21st Century learning here.

Unfortunately at this venue we are unable to offer an extended day package, however we are able to arrange for a Creative Childcare Role Model to look after your child around the times of the course. If this is of interest, please email
