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 workshop:

  • 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 workshops 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 workshop 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-workshop email, which you will receive towards the end of the week before the course starts. If you have any questions please email Sophie on [email protected]

The Role Models Life Skills workshops, programmes  and courses include 4 key topics (Resilience & Growth Mindset, Leadership & Emotional Intelligence, Collaboration & Confidence Building and Creativity and Problem Solving) for children aged 5-7 & 8-11. We run a course for each topic and also can run numerous workshops for each age group. 

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.
