Developing resilience

Helping your child to develop their resilience is one of the most effective ways to help them thrive at school, home and beyond. By developing a growth mindset, children can learn to push themselves outside of their comfort zone, embrace new experiences, challenges and persevere in areas that might not be their strengths. Understanding that intelligence and ability are not predetermined and that mistakes can help us learn, can have a huge impact on the way  a child approaches life.

Improve classroom learning

Developing resilience and a growth mindset can affect a child’s attitude and can also improve the way they learn in the classroom. Taking risks, dealing with setbacks, and pushing themselves to achieve more are all outcomes which can positively impact their education and attainment.

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

The week includes fun activities during which the children work together in teams or groups to solve different challenges. They will learn about the power of making mistakes, how ‘thinking traps’ can often affect feelings and behaviour, and the positive impact ‘reframing’ a situation can have. The children will explore how the mind works and begin to understand the concept of ‘neuroplasticity’. They will also touch upon other concepts within Positive Psychology which allow us to thrive. 

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 resilience, we believe everyone should be developing this important life skill. The week is a great opportunity for any child to gain a better understanding of what a growth mindset looks, sounds and feels like and how powerful it can be when applied in different situations. They will learn that we don’t have to believe everything we think and that they can choose how to respond and react to the various challenges life inevitably throws at us.  The collaboration and communication with others throughout the week can help boost general self-confidence and self-awareness. The course is 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

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. An extended day will be charged at £15 per day per child.
