Learn By Doing
The Young Leaders programme takes a practical approach to developing the listening, sharing and social supportive skills of children and young people. We use interactive play-based activities and games to stimulate discussions that shape understanding in Mental Health and Neuroscience. By using digital and creative media young people consolidate the skills they’ve developed during the programme.
We ran the programme with our year 10 and 12 groups and were really delighted with the level of interest, the engagement, the delivery of the programme and the enthusiastic response from the students. The staff delivering the course were excellent and quickly established a rapport with the students which allowed for open and frank discussions as well as engaging sessions for the students.
The workshops were interactive, playful and educational, each student was thoroughly engaged and have all taken away skills and techniques that they can utilise in exams and everyday life. All of the staff and students were all impressed with the brain games and techniques Neuro Champions use to manage stress in a practical way. Thank you to all of your wonderful staff at Neuro Champions.
If you could see the children’s’ faces, then that says it all to me. That they are so keen to go to the Neuro Champions sessions and the fact that they can talk about it, and talk about what they have done. And it’s not been about getting away from PE or whatever they are getting out of, they’re actually communicating about what they can do.
