Teach your kids the skills they need to thrive in the modern world.
Research tells us that skills such as resilience, growth mindset, creativity and, emotional intelligence are more significant predictors of your child's success than their grades.
If you don't have the time, skills or expertise to teach your kids these skills as well as they need you to... then why not see how our courses can help?
old ways of thinking
Huge changes to the way that we live and work mean that as adults, our kids will face challenges that we can only begin to imagine today.
And yet, we seem to be thinking about preparing our kids for their future in the same old way: hoping that they pop out of the education system with some decent grades and an interesting CV.
why that way of thinking isn't enough anymore
- 1If current trends continue, within the next 8 years 40% of all graduates from OECD or G20 countries will come from China & India. The EU & USA will contribute 25%. (UK Commission for Employment and Skills- The future of work: Jobs and skills in 2030).
- 2This means huge competition: employers will be able to connect with and choose from a well-educated global talent pool, which means they can outsource work to a cheaper, often more qualified labour market within a few mouse clicks.
- 3Automation and technology: as algorithms become more adept and “intelligent”, well paid jobs that were traditionally the preserve of the educated middle class, Accountancy, Law, Banking, are being lost... this is ALREADY happening
different thinking required
Einstein said 'You can't solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it',
therefore, to give our kids the best chance of success we believe that we need to think differently, to do that we need to ask ourselves different questions:
the skills needed
After much research we believe that the following skills will enable our kids to stand out from their competition and be economically relevant in a technological world.
where we come in
Most of us just don't have the time, knowledge, or the expertise to teach our kids these skills as well as we'd like to (or as well as they need us to).
Our mission is to help you do this: we create fun, engaging, research-based tools and lessons so that you can teach your kids the skills that will help them stand out from their competition.
see for yourself
Our research over the years has led us to believe that RESILIENCE is probably the single most important attribute for our kids to have. Why not see if our approach to teaching our kids how to be RESILIENT will work on yours?
