Work together to succeed

Learning to work together with others towards a shared goal is essential for success – at school, at work and at home. We believe that confidence, communication and collaboration are the key to working effectively with others. True teamwork is about making your own contribution but also listening to others, recognising your own and others’ strengths, understanding each other, being sensitive to others’ needs and accepting feedback.

Be a great communicator

Communication is a key part of collaboration. This includes being comfortable with asserting yourself and your ideas. Our Collaboration course includes interview preparation, focusing on confidence and both verbal and non-verbal communication. This is very useful for those approaching and preparing for 11+ or other types of interviews. These interviews increasingly now focus on group work and how your child interacts with others, so developing collaboration skills can be a helpful form of preparation.

Course Breakdown Questions

The course is designed to develop the two key skills of collaboration and communication. The week includes fun activities which encourage the children to explore ways of working together to solve team challenges and timed exercises. They will learn about compromise, flexibility and the importance of listening. Specific activities include working as a team to come up with a plan to herd ‘blind sheep’ into a pen using only noises under timed conditions, as well as making a team tower as tall as possible.

Our  courses are fast-paced, high energy and challenging. Your child will be active, engaged and up on their feet. None of the tasks are easy; in fact, we don’t mind if the children struggle with the exercises at the first attempt. It is through this process that resilience and strength of character can be built, in a positive and supportive environment.

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.

Our courses are not designed just for children who struggle with collaboration. We believe everyone should be developing this important life skill on an ongoing basis. Your child may already be a ‘team player’ but maybe needs to develop their communication skills or their sensitivity towards the needs of others. Developing the skills of collaborating and communicating is a great way to 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 and supportive environment.

1. Reflection

At the end of each day of the course the children reflect on their learning and how they will apply this in their everyday life . They are encouraged to set themselves short and long-term targets, with support and feedback from their Role Model.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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

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.

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.
