Focusing on communication and teamwork, this course helps children aged 8-11 build confidence and explores compromise, flexibility and listening skills. Public speaking and interview skills are also developed.
Work together to succeed
Learning to work together with others towards a shared goal is essential for success – at school, at work and at home. We believe that confidence, communication and collaboration are the key to working effectively with others. True teamwork is about making your own contribution but also listening to others, recognising your own and others’ strengths, understanding each other, being sensitive to others’ needs and accepting feedback.
Be a great communicator
Our Collaboration Course focuses on encouraging children to consider the skills needed to effectively work together. Communication is a key part of collaboration. This includes being comfortable with asserting yourself and your ideas. Our Collaboration course includes interview preparation, focusing on confidence and both verbal and non-verbal communication. This is very useful for those approaching and preparing for 11+ or other types of interviews. These interviews increasingly now focus on group work and how your child interacts with others, so developing collaboration skills can be a helpful form of preparation. More and more interactions may now be taking place online; this course is a great way for your child to learn to ‘show their best self’ when communicating online.
