How building self-worth in school happens…

This week, a media agency from one of the major universities visited Claires Court to engage our Sixth Formers in some evaluative activities; research is vital to understand young adults’ views for their future, for University and for future employment. The agency made a particular call back to the head of Sixth Form to report that their experience with us and of our Sixth Formers was extraordinary. The openness and willingness of the students to engage seemed second to none.

Well that’s all fine and dandy, but how’s it done, this building of ‘confidence’. In this bog that will develop a bit for a few days, I thought I would have a go at showing you some of our tools in action.

So have a good watch of the presentation I am using this morning Friday 25 November with the Sixth Form, which is about building self-worth. It’s also of course about building resilience, anger and shame; raising political awareness and teaching too about the Armour our society through parliament creates to protect civilians who genuinely care.

I’ll write back later about the next steps that developed from the presentation.
