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. 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.

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

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

Role Models is committed to social action. For every ten places booked, we offer one free place to a child who would not otherwise have access to our courses.

Course Breakdown Questions

Each day two stories are shared based around the theme of confidence and then activities are completed to 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 set to challenge them to embed their learning. Brilliant ‘Billy’ the bunny accompanies the children throughout the week and is used as a distancing tool; talking about 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:

  • Inner strength
  • Being different
  • Self-acceptance
  • Not listening to the crowd & being who you want to be
  • Having the confidence to try new things
  • Making ourselves visible to others

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

The Role Models Life Skills programme includes 7 different courses for children in Years 1-6 (ages 6-11). 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.

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.

1. 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.

2. Follow-Up

At the end of each day of the course, parents will receive an email with photos and a summary of what the children have done throughout the day. After the course ends, we send three follow-up videos which are designed to help your child embed key themes from the course. These are sent 2, 4 and 6 weeks after the course has finished.

3. 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

4. Embedding the themes

Parents will 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.

Yes we do! You can either book a standard day (10-3 or 10-4 for certain courses) or an extended day (8.30 until 6pm.) Our course content will only run between the hours of a standard day. Outside of these hours, one of our Creative Childcare Role Models will join the children to run extra-curricular games and activities.
You can select which days you extend based on your needs, as extended hours are charged per day. Please note: If you select an extended day, you can collect your children before 6pm, but will still be charged for the full day. An extended day will be charged at £25 per day per child. Please book a standard day at the checkout and then call us to add the extended day package on 0203 6377107 or email
