Designed to make your child feel confident

This course uses the power of storytelling and creative activities to help children believe in themselves. 'Brilliant Billy the Bunny’ accompanies the children throughout the course to help them navigate their emotions in a fun and supportive environment.

What does the course focus on?

Each day, two stories are shared based around the theme of confidence. Each story is followed by a creative activity which helps 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.

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

An example story shared during the course is the charming ‘Perfectly Norman’ by Tom Percival, a bold and uplifting book about daring to be different and having the courage to dance to your own tune. The story is shared and discussed as a group, followed by an activity which explores the things that we should celebrate about ourselves. The children make their own pair of ‘wonderful wings’. decorating them with all the things that make them special.

Our team is pleased to offer this course at Caldicott, a preparatory school located in Buckinghamshire. Caldicott’s campus is a mixture of tradition and modern-updates, making it a fantastic site for children to grow and learn about important life skills from our Role Models.


How does it work?

Our courses are available for children aged 5-7, 8-10 & 11-13. They typically run for either 3 or 5 consecutive days.

Getting to know your child

All our courses are run in small groups. This ensures our Role Model can get to know each child individually.

To help with this, before the course begins, we ask you to answer a few questions about your child and any specific needs they might have. We will also ask about food allergies, medical conditions and any additional needs that our Role Model needs to know about.

It will only take a minute or two, and it ensures our Role Model has all the information they need to ensure your child has the best experience possible.

Included with all our courses...

  • Each day you will receive a summary email, describing what was covered so you can discuss it with your child. They may also include photos of your child taking part in the activities (if consent has been given).
  • At the end of the course you'll receive a set of top-tips on how you can support the development of life skills at home.
  • Your child will receive a branded official certificate to recognise completion of the course.
  • You'll also receive a written report from the Role Model working with your child, highlighting their strengths and areas for further development.
  • Finally, after the course has finished you'll receive follow up videos, that you can watch with your child. These aim to remind your child of the key course themes.

Recent reviews

from parents & children that attended courses in the collaboration series.

My daughter loved her course and was very motivated to attend each week. She grew in confidence in her learning and it was lovely to see her participating and overcoming her anxiety of speaking up in unfamiliar situations. A brilliant course - thank you so much!
- Rachel
My daughter really enjoyed the course and was totally engaged despite initial reservations. Amy delivered the sessions in a sensitive and appropriate way making sure that my daughter was fully included despite her communication difficulties and access issues. She has taken to heart the learnings from the course which, I hope, will stand her in good stead in the future. Thank you Role Models for a truly excellent course.
- Francesca
The topics covered are interesting and so useful for my sons development. He is understanding concepts and learning skills which he would never be able to do otherwise Amy keeps the group moving along and makes sure that the attendees are interested and have a good time. She creates a lovely atmosphere
- Sally
My daughter has always thought she would not be good at debating, but this session gave her more confidence.

How has the content been developed?

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 with over 24 years of teaching experience. Our content emphasises the importance of developing essential key life skills alongside academic attainment, in order to thrive in life.

Who delivers the content?

Our highly experienced team of Role Models are passionate about both education and social & emotional wellbeing. They’re energetic, engaging and curious. They’re adept at combining educational rigour with fun, to create active learning environments that children love. All have been interviewed by our Recruitment Team and are reference and DBS checked.

Can I enrol two children onto the same course or club?

Yes of course! Contact us for information about multi-buy and referral discounts.

What type of child is this course designed for?

Our courses are not designed only for those who may be struggling with specific life skills. We believe all children can build on these essential skills in order to reach their full potential. Your child may need a boost in confidence, to strengthen their resilience or they may just need an opportunity to go outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves by working with new people.

What is the Extended Day Package?

At some venues we are able to look after your child for additional hours before and after the usual course time. We call this the Extended Day package. Outside of the course hours, one of our Role Models will run some extra-curricular games and activities.

An Extended Day Package costs between £15 and £25 depending on the number of hours of additional childcare. If this is available, it will be listed at the top of the course page, showing the specific hours and the price. If the message is not shown at the top of the course page, then we don’t offer an extended day at this venue.

It will also be shown at the checkout as an optional extra, charged for each day of the course. If you would like to use the Extended Day facility but only on specific days, please call or email us with your requirements.

Subject to demand, we can offer transport to and from Brook Green and Caldicott School everyday. Pickup will be from the south side of Brook Green, between Luxemburg Gardens and Mercedes Place to Caldicott School at 08:45. Children will arrive back at 16:00.

We will be working with Ontime minicabs to offer 8 seater minicabs as the Caldicott minibus service is unavailable due to insurance complications. Ontime's drivers all have had enhanced DBS checks and are fully responsible for the children’s wellbeing. No staff, other than the bus driver will be on the bus.

To use this service, please email programmes@rolemodels.me at least 14 days before the course begins, and let us know which days you require transport. This service will cost £25 per child per day.
