Learn valuable Life Skills at your kitchen table with a 60 minute interactive and engaging online taster session. Developed specifically for students aged 8-11.

In these uncertain times, our aim is to help your children become more resilient and confident and feel able to handle big emotions in the face of changes and challenges.

Although your child will be fine to access the learning independently, you are welcome to stay with them for the session. In fact we actively encourage you to ‘listen in’ for at least the first half so you can see what they get up to!

Getting Started

Creating an Account

(You can register with your name/email as the parent as during the first session it is possible to change the name displayed on the camera screen to your child’s at a later stage)

Other notes on the online course:

  • Your child will need a quiet space for the sessions and a computer/laptop/ipad with internet connection
  • The sessions will be interactive so they will need to be seen (using the computer camera/webcam) and heard (using the computer microphone or headset)
  • They will need a pen/pencil and paper during the sessions
  • It’s important the children are relaxed and comfortable; if possible please do help them get set up for the first session and be on hand for any technical difficulties.
  • Following that, we find these sessions work best when the children are given the independence to complete them alone rather than having other people listening and watching nearby. However please feel free to listen if you would like to!
  • The content of the sessions will include discussion, games, watching videos, and sharing thoughts and ideas with the group. The children will at times be required to type using the keyboard and answer verbally

More information will be shared in our pre-course email, which you will receive towards the end of the week before the course starts.

The Role Models Life Skills programme includes 8 different courses for children aged 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

How do you feel about being a leader? We will be thinking about our strengths and how we have lots of opportunities every day to have a positive impact on others.

  • You will be on a video call (like skype or Facetime) with a Role Model and around 11 other children your age
  • You can wear comfortable clothes and have a drink nearby in case you need it
  • It will be a fun session of games, talking, watching some videos and thinking together with the group
  • We would love you tell us your ideas and feelings during the session, so talking and participating is definitely encouraged! But if there’s anything you don’t want to do, you can just sit and listen
  • We can’t wait to meet you and learn some awesome new skills together!
