Brightwings Experience

How we design our courses

Our courses are carefully researched and designed to give young people the skills and insights that will help them the most. Our courses incorporate:

  • The latest advances in behavioural science, self-development and business

  • Insights from industry, including those from our network of professionals and recent graduate alumni, and our research

How we make it stick

Personalised Outcomes
Students apply the new skills and insights they learn to create their own unique goals and action plans.

A Step-out-of-your-comfort-zone Environment
We create a supportive and engaging environment that accelerates learning.

 

Science of Expertise
Students get many opportunities to practice and gain immediate, constructive feedback to really hone their skills.

Community & Collaboration
Students leave with a network and a group of friends who will continue to support each other on their journey.

Principles of our learning journey
  1. Practice the core skills from Day 1 - From Day 1, participants learn the core skills (presenting, leading, and teamwork), put them into practice immediately and build them throughout the course

  2. Giving immediate, constructive feedback - This is key to making progress. Participants learn how to give and receive feedback constructively. We practice this throughout the course and end with a 360° feedback session with peers

  3. Planning the next steps – On the penultimate day, participants evaluate themselves, receive feedback from their peers, create an action plan, and celebrate the progress they have made. It is the final and most important step because this will drive the actions that will help participants to create successful futures for themselves

  4. Every module builds upon previous learnings - Participants get many opportunities to practice and hone their new skills. The more skills and self-awareness they gain, the more they can fine-tune and deepen their skills

  5. Building a supportive network - Participants make friends easily because they'll be working together with all members of the class to achieve meaningful things together

Workbook

Each participant will receive their own workbook which contains course notes and sections to capture:

  • Course notes

  • Self-evaluation and feedback from peers

  • Individual goals and action plans

  • Self-awareness insights and personal brand – which will feed into their school, university or scholarship applications and future CVs

  • Assessment of how to make the learnings applicable to studies, applications, family relationships and friendship groups, and future direction

What is the experience like?

Engaging & Practical
Participants put things into practice. Throughout the sessions, every participant will get multiple opportunities to lead, present, and to practice and hone their new skills. They will be surprised at how much they grow.

Personal Growth & Insight
Participants will experience a journey as they gain fresh and useful insights into themselves, push themselves out of their comfort zone, and set goals and actions to shape their future.

Supportive & Friendly
We create an environment which creates generosity and collaboration between participants as they work together to develop themselves and each other.
