As a teacher or headteacher you’re probably frustrated that too many of your teenage girls lack confidence, or that some girls are so preoccupied by the way they look that they are not fully engaging with their learning.
Or that they are distracted by changing friendship groups, or the latest social media upset, that they are not focused on achieving their goals, developing themselves and fulfilling their potential.
We can help. We run confidence workshops with years 7 to 10 students to address these issues.
In these fun, interactive sessions we encourage students to understand themselves better, so they can appreciate their own talents and individuality.
Taking a supportive and empathetic approach we explore:
- Better self-understanding….so they to recognise their talents
- Exploring role models …to inspire goals and raise aspirations
- Exposing photoshopping in the media…to build their body confidence
- Speaking confidently…to increase their confidence for speaking in class
- Positive thinking …to build their confidence
The two hour workshop is run with groups of 15 girls, and includes sharing ideas, activities, video clips and discussion. Every girl has her own workbook to use in the session, and to keep as reference. The sessions are lively and interactive, and everything discussed is in confidence.
“It helped me realise I don’t have to hide away and not give my opinion, I am a valued person”
Jasmine (aged 12)
Two-thirds of girls report feeling ‘more confident’ after the session
Measuring effectiveness of workshops
Every girl completes a feedback form at the end of the workshop, and we summarise this feedback into a report, so you can understand what the students got out of the session.
Our workshops are available to schools in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Oxfordshire and London.
