It's all about the Teacher

It’s all about
The Teacher

In Brief

The difference between schools that thrive and schools that wilt during this season of rapid change depends on the ability to make the necessary changes. Change is hard, but essential.  It requires both comfort and capacity.  Most schools are deficient in innovation DNA.   By empowering the teacher to make and implement changes, schools will not only survive, but thrive in the 21st century.


Classroom Management
That Works

In Brief

Teaching is building.  We are constructing competent, confident, capable, calm adult characters who will add value as citizens in society.  The process of the construction is both an art and a science. In classroom management that works, the goal is to develop the three executive functions of Inhibitory Control (managing time, priorities and self-control), Cognitive flexibility (the ability to think deeply on a range of topics and see different problem-solving perspectives) and Working Memory (the capacity to draw on previous knowledge and massage it with new incoming information to grow different memories). We achieve this through practical methodologies and approaches to ensure the classroom is transformed into an optimum learning environment.
ECD - Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional

In Brief

There are no good feelings or bad feelings.  Emotions are just data.  This data dramatically affects the way humans respond.  When teachers are trained in Emotional Intelligence (Ei) and embed the knowledge in every subject, students soon learn the power of recognising emotions, giving them a name, mastering the art of regulating the effect it has on their lives and using emotions to improve their own and others’ wellbeing.
Topic - Growing Gritty Minds

Gritty Minds

In Brief

Goethe said, “Everything is hard before it is easy!”  That quote seems to sum up the reality that the human brain is hardwired for struggle and when teachers allow students to fail and try again, mastery is achieved as a result of a combination of passion and resilience.  In an age where parents try to make the road to success smooth, students are losing out on an essential ingredient in their success sojourn - GRIT. The package takes educators on a journey into mindsets, the power of choice, the role of relationships, and the damage caused by anxiety when failure isn’t encouraged as a lifeskill.
ECD - The Behaviour Code

The Behaviour

In Brief

Equip your school with effective strategies to address challenging behaviour in students. The Behaviour Code delves into the science behind behaviour, providing a comprehensive understanding of its psychological and neurological factors. Gain valuable insights into why these behaviours occur and learn how to address them. Teachers and School Leaders, shape your students' behaviour with confidence.
ECD - How am I smart

The Future of

In Brief

Shift from "Are you SMART?" to "How are you SMART?" starting from Early Childhood Development (ECD).

Simple activities like playing with a trinomial cube toy lay the groundwork for future algebraic formulas. Cultivating values like grace and courtesy builds essential social skills. By linking science, social sciences, art, drama, and culture, we wire young brains for interdisciplinary learning. Join us on a practical journey to explore and unleash the unique potential of every child.
