Building a Growth Mindset

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.

Each online Brilliant Me Course includes access to additional exciting activities for your child to do independently at any point during their day/week. Each of these is designed to take up to an hour and be a fun distraction from what is going on around them. These activity sheets will be emailed to you along with a summary of the content shared during the online session each day.

Designed to help your child feel confident

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

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

Course Breakdown Questions

The 90 minute sessions will be run on a software called Zoom. The children will need to have access to a device that has the internet, runs PowerPoint and facilitates the use of audio and camera (webcam).

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.

Each day a story is 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:

    1. Different ways to show confidence
    2. Being awesome
    3. What do I like about myself?
    4. Finding my big voice
    5. Doing things I might not be good at

Each online Brilliant Me Course includes access to additional exciting activities for your child to do independently at any point during their day/week. Each of these is designed to take up to an hour and be a fun distraction from what is going on around them. These activity sheets will be emailed to you along with a summary of the content shared during the online session each day.

Here is how you could describe this session to your child:

“Sometimes we all feel different things….worried, angry, frustrated or not very confident. These feelings are all totally normal and there are great things you can learn to help you when you feel like these feelings are too big.

You are going to listen to some stories, play some games and learn new things to help you feel your happiest, most confident and BRILLIANT self.

You will be on a video call (like Skype or Facetime) with a Role Model and around 8 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 talking, thinking and making together with the group. We would love you tell us your ideas and feelings during the activities, so talking is encouraged! But if there’s anything you don’t want to do, you can just sit and watch.

We can’t wait to meet you and learn some awesome new skills together!”

  • 4 x 90 minute online sessions running from 10-11.30am (GMT)
  • A group of around 8 children will be led by an inspirational Role Model
  • Children to join the online session using ‘Zoom’ software (which can be downloaded) from your home. This software is very straight-forward and similar to Skype
  • Children will need access to an internet connection and a suitable device (desktop computer/laptop/Ipad)
  • The sessions should take place in a quiet room where there is a high bandwidth. The Role Model will run the programme from a quiet space too. It is vital that children are comfortable and able to speak openly

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.

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