As Leo Tolstoy said, ‘Spring is the time of plans and projects’ and for us here it is no exception, at Les Elfes we have been busy developing and fine tuning our Spring and Summer programs and new to this year are our Personal Development Programs.
These dynamic and interactive workshops will enable our students to develop a toolbox of teamwork skills which will help them to build mature lasting relationships with friends and colleagues, create imaginative and complex solutions to problems and focus on their Emotional Intelligence using theories and practices from a range of academic scholars in the field of experiential learning.
The Four main PDPs will be:
Perfecting your online identity is an ever increasing topic and very much of the now.
Personal branding and social media awareness is tantamount to how people not only see you but potentially see what you do each day.
We teach pragmatic approaches on this topic, and cover many different aspects of data management, from uploading images appropriately to dialogue with other online users in different scenarios.
Within our Etiquette classes students will become familiar with understanding decorum in formal and less formal scenarios and how to present one self in a range of environments.
Perfect for students who are stepping into a new arena such as university overseas.
With our fun approach our classes will best prepare students on how to conduct themselves in a confident and comfortable manner, or how to best tackle an interview or even to host a dinner party!
Our careers programme combines a practical development training model with components designed to equip students for the world of work.
We have inspirational guest speakers to enlighten students about the range of different opportunities and paths for reaching their goals and a first aid course, run by a professional trainer, in which students can take away a valid first aid certificate as part of the professional development portfolio for universities or colleges.
Our leadership programme comprises interactive development training sessions and an introduction to a range of academic models covering group dynamics and leadership techniques.
Our students have the opportunity to apply their new skills in outdoor activities and to set personal goals throughout the training to develop their personal leadership style. Through our programme students are empowered to use their knowledge of the theories underpinning affective leadership and the confidence to grow as a young adult to become a successful leader for others.
For our youngest students we offer a diverse range of activities designed to give students the opportunity to express themselves and to explore their creative talent.
Our programme combines art classes with a local art school, cooking and food preparation workshops, theatre and improvisation sessions and a chance for public speaking and group presentations to build confidence and team working skills.
