Course Schedule

The courses run from approximately 9am-5pm each day with two breaks and lunch.

Upon registration, participants will receive a breakdown of the specific modules that will be taught throughout the week. 

Journey Principles

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 

1.

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

5.

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.

2.

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

4.

Presentations for parents – The parents will hear from the course lead and every participant themselves about what they have learnt, how they have benefited, and what their next steps will be. Parents will also receive specific advice on how they can help their child progress beyond this

6.

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

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.
