First Steps to Leadership Workshops


This series of half-day workshops provides primary school pupils with the opportunity to explore the character qualities and leadership skills of great leaders. We want primary school pupils to ‘dream big’ and the aim of the workshops is to provide the rationale, language and tools to raise aspirations, promote achievement and increase their happiness.

The workshops have been designed to provide an active learning experience packed with activities, role play, group work, discussion and laughter.

The workshops have a flexible design and have successfully been used by schools as:

KS2 to KS3 transitional workshops.
Motivational workshops for Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils.
Multi Academy Trust pupil collaboration days.
Enrichment activities.
Activity week provision.
An integral component of summer schools.
A parental engagement project.
