Support, encourage and motivate

Leadership is being able to support, encourage and motivate others to achieve a shared goal. It is also about having a positive impact on those around us. To work well with others, we must first learn to identify and understand our own emotions, strengths and weaknesses. This self-awareness allows us to make the best contribution and recognise the feelings, needs and strengths of those we work with.

Please watch our Parent Webinar below to get a better sense for what our Leadership Course entails. This includes an overview of what your child will learn, together with ideas and strategies for supporting their learning at home:





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

You will learn all about leadership and explore the types of skills and attributes that allow us to effectively lead others. Do you see yourself as a leader? We will explore ‘everyday leadership’ and the impact we can have on others. You will also reflect on your own personal strengths and how you use these to lead.

  • 5 x 5 hour days
  • A group of around 12 children will be led by an inspirational Role Model
  • You can wear comfortable clothes
  • It will be a fun week of games, talking, watching some videos and thinking together with the group
  • We would love you to tell us your ideas and feelings during the activities. Being reflective and open to discussions means you’ll get so much more from the course
  • We can’t wait to meet you and learn some awesome new skills together!

Our courses are not designed specifically for children who struggle with leadership; we believe everyone should be developing this important life skill. Perhaps your child has great leadership potential but lacks the opportunity to demonstrate and develop it further. The course is a great opportunity for someone who may already be a ‘natural leader’ but needs to develop their empathy and ability to understand the impact of their actions on others. Developing the skills of collaborating and communicating with others can boost general self-confidence and self-awareness. The course is also a great way for children to explore being outside of their comfort zone within a fun and supportive environment.

We are able to 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.

To use this service, please email at least 7 days before the course begins, and let us know which days you require transport. This service will cost £5.25/child/journey.

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.
