Our courses teach the skills that children need to thrive in the world today.

We all know that people who communicate well, contribute brilliantly to teams and can bounce back from disappointment lead rich and fulfilling lives. Employers are crying out for these skills today.

The Partnership for 21st Century Learning is a framework designed to help children become life and job ready. They have helped us develop a programme of courses that teach children all of these important skills and more.

Our ‘Learning to Fly’ courses are designed to help children develop the 4Cs – creative problem solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. We also teach and develop other essential character attributes such as leadership, resilience and growth mindset. We believe that talking and thinking should be given as much weight as reading and writing in any child’s development and our courses are designed to support that belief.

Leadership Course – Christmas 2018

Leadership is being able to support, encourage and motivate others to achieve a shared goal. It’s also about having a positive impact on others, in any context. One of the most important qualities in order to do this is a high level of empathy and emotional intelligence. In order to work with and lead others, we must first learn to identify and understand our own emotions, strengths and weaknesses. This self-awareness allows us to make our own best contribution and our empathy allows us to recognise the feelings, needs and strengths of others. This level of emotional awareness is an essential skill for building any type of relationship or interaction, whether with family, friends, peers, or work colleagues.
