We all want children to become independent individuals who find genuine fulfilment in whatever they do in their lives. As a result, characteristics like ‘confidence’ and ‘resilience’ are desirable and they have become educational buzzwords. But how can we really develop these characteristics in young people?

Our programme helps children to present themselves effectively and react positively to pressure. It will teach children to value collaboration and imagination, to be unafraid of complex challenges and to develop a positive and robust approach to setbacks.

Our Summer Confidence & Resilience Courses are for Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 to 7, from July 18 to 22 (10am – 3pm) in Wimbledon, Pimlico and Hampstead and from August 30 to September 2 in Clapham, Chelsea and Marylebone. Please see the link for more information or contact us: 020 7164 6397 / info@rolemodels.me.
