Educating for Character Masterclass

Teaching with TLC

Resilience, confidence, collaboration and communication are top of the list of qualities required in school and the world of work. In a complex and rapidly changing workplace there’s a greater need than ever to support the growth and development of our students’ character from a young age. We call this 'Teaching with TLC' (Team work, Leadership and Communication) skills.

Over the course of 2 afternoon events we will explore the principles, strategies and activities to guarantee powerful outdoor learning experiences to promote personal and social development in young people.

You will gain: 

  • The confidence around what to do and how to do it
  • How to structure sessions
  • Techniques to extract powerful learning
  • Getting to grips with mechanics of activities and our TLC hubs

We will explore questions such as:

Where is the learning transfer? What are the benefits and applications in other areas of school life?

How do we map these skills across our whole curriculum and find the relevance?

How do we create progression?

How can we create time to develop these skills?

What would a mini award scheme look like and what skills would they be working on?
