Our Offerings





Offline Holiday Courses

We are able to offer a partnership to schools whereby they are able to ‘white label’ our Holiday Courses eg. The Caldicott Leadership Course. It’s a great way to offer something developmental and unique during the school holidays for your students.

Role Models will handle the bookings, parent questions, bookings and course delivery. All the school needs to do is promote the course to their parent community.

Talking Heads Model

These 60 minute sessions are delivered live by one of our trained Role Models, through an interactive white board in each classroom. Supporting facilitation is provided by one of your teachers.  Topics covered include resilience, leadership, collaboration and creative problem solving.

These sessions can be launched with a parent talk and a meeting with your teachers to explain what the sessions are about.

After School Clubs

Our After School Clubs run throughout the school term and will cover areas such as public speaking, interview skills and problem solving for children in years 3-8 (aged 7-13). Role Models train your teachers in running these clubs. 

This programme runs as 10 weekly sessions lasting an hour, with your teachers needing to put in an additional hour each week for preparation and post session follow up emails. 

Staff CPD

We offer life skills training to teachers which are in-line with new Ofsted regulations. These consist of ways to cultivate resilience, confidence, leadership and creativity in the classroom. Each session is delivered online by our Character Education team. They last 90 minutes and can host between 30-40 teachers. We have three topics available:

1. Developing Life Skills in Your Pupils

A 90min online session focusing on the importance of life skills for your pupils. This session explores the link between life skills and mental health & wellbeing, but also their impact on academic attainment and helping pupils become ‘work’ and ‘life’ ready. Practical ideas for teaching staff to take away and put into practise to help build their pupils’ resilience, self-belief and confidence.

2. Character Education in Schools

A 90min online presentation about the relevance of Character Education in schools. How can school leaders and teachers best consider and build on their provision in this area of ‘Personal Development’ for their pupils? Links will be made to Ofsted/ISI as well as the recent Guidance for schools on how to embed Character Education into their curriculum.

3. Responding to Pupils’ Pastoral Needs

A 90min online session focusing on managing and responding to the pastoral needs of your pupils. How do we effectively respond to the friendship issues, pupils’ worries and all the many pastoral related aspects of supporting our pupils beyond their academic progress? This session explores a restorative approach and focuses on how to support your pupils’ social and emotional wellbeing in a practical way, given the time constraints and pressures within the school day.

See our testimonials below for feedback from staff who have organised these sessions for their teachers!
