Focusing on communication and teamwork, this course helps build confidence, and explores compromise, flexibility and listening skills. Public speaking and interview skills are also developed. It is made up of 5 x 90 minute online sessions.
Each student will join the online session using ‘Zoom’ software (which can be downloaded) from their home.
Students from all countries are welcome. Course times are based on UK time and all students must be fluent in English.
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.
Each online Life Skills Course includes access to additional exciting activities for your child to do independently at any point during their day/week. Each of these is designed to be a fun distraction from what is going on around them. These activity sheets will be emailed to you along with a summary of the content shared during the online session each day.
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.
