Network 7 – a social skills programme for year 7 students.
The aim of Network 7 is to make each individual more able to deal with the varied situations he/she encounters in the school and to increase his/her confidence. The approach we use is designed to:
- raise self esteem
- provide teacher and peer support
- teach a set of problem solving skills
- encourage the setting of goals
- help draw up individual action plans
This course runs for eight weeks. Each week the sessions focus on a different area to help the students settle in to life at Secondary School such as, organisation skills, problem solving, friendships and communication skills.
Through a series of workshop activities the students explore skills they already have and learn how to expand and improve them to benefit their school life, friendships, relationships with parents, carers and teachers and their confidence and self esteem in general.
