Our Methodology

The Kaizen Approach

An extensive body of research exists that links the focus on young peoples’ strengths and skills to important social and emotional competencies. This approach also emphasises the importance of the school community as an incubator of positive development.

All of our workshops are therefore designed to positively impact the contexts that influence young people over time. Whether working with your staff or pupils, we focus on developing the critical relationships needed to generate support, opportunities and resources.

These link to key outcomes from Every Child Matters and the Self Evaluation Form. In particular those that encourage children to ‘Make a Positive Contribution’.
