A new course for 2021, Kilgraston Summer School's Youth Leadership Programme is for teenagers aged 14 - 17 years old, with a minimum of a B2 level of English (CEFR).
Our Youth Leadership Programme is designed for teenagers who want to develop essential leadership skills that they can use in the next steps on their education and career pathways. Course components include developing self-leadership and team-leadership, problem solving to achieve objectives, working as a team, putting plans into action, building resilience when things don't go to plan, and reflecting on self and team performance.
This is a 2-week course, running for 40 hours in total. Twenty hourse will be dedicated to classroom-based instruction, with the remaining 20-hours consisting of group project work and planning.
Under the supervision of Kilgraston Summer School's Youth Leadership Programme instructors, participants will take the initiative in planning and co-leading the Summer School's House Championship events, which will run during the evening social programme. The Youth Leadership Programme participants will take the role of House Captains, which reflects the 'prefect' roles that senior students take in Kilgraston's year-round School, and puts into practice the skills that are discussed in the classroom each morning.
This course will run twice during the Summer School, and each will have a maximum capacity of 20 students. This course is also open to local students, so international students will have the chance to communicate in English throughout the course with native English-speaking classmates.
As the minimum level of English for enrolment on this course is B2, students will have a level-test interview that will be arranged after receipt of the application form. This will involve writing a short essay, as well as a spoken interview via video-link.
