Lead the Way

Some say 'children are our future'. But does it scare you that the future may be in the hands of that wacky but wonderful, that intense yet intelligent, and that confused and confident group of seniors? This collection will help you to help prepare seniors for what we call 'the real world'.

Lead the Way
  • Amy Watson says:
    Whilst signing up for a workshop may be a bit out of reach, the leadership challenge section on this website is useful. My favorite part is their 'What Leaders Read' (link on the left hand side). It provides information to inspire teens - biographies of other leaders, songs and quotes about leadership to embed into your leadership lessons.
  • Amy Watson says:
    Perhaps you need some classroom ideas to develop leadership? Or maybe you have a pupil who is a shining star. This website offers teaching ideas as well as wide range of programs for high aspiring students. It will help you give that extra edge and inspiration to those who need it.

    Sometimes students feel that being a leader is not for them, but this doesn't mean they can't work on it and develop confidence. The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership stated here is the perfect place to start.

    Leadership and Design are a wonderful group who create experiences to promote to creativity and leadership. They run excellent programs for students, but more interestingly can offer courses and support for staff, making sure teachers are being the best role models they can.

    Teenagers are our future...and our present

    5 minute read
    Amy Watson says:
    It's easy to get ahead of ourselves and constantly focus on the future, and the same can be said for our young people. Yes, they will play important roles in society, but let's not forget to fill them with confidence, attainable goals, and let them know that they are valued NOW. From there we can begin chasing dreams.
