Summary: Half-day training sessions for young people and staff to make school councils smart, and READY for ACTION!
More info: We have a range of half-day sessions to energise student voice and stop school councils being boring and tokenistic. These sessions help young people create student voice that is exciting, active and that lead on change.
Half day sessions can work really well for younger pupils. Also, two half day sessions split over a term can also really get things going by setting targets and evaluating them in the second session.
Our half-day training can look at the following:
- Understand what they are doing well and what they can improve
- Get more students involved!
- Make student voice fun!
- Develop a clear action plan for success
- Raise aspirations for what they can achieve
- Project management skills
- Leadership skills
- Meeting skills
Our training also supports the adults that work with young people to facilitate better student voice.
