RESOLVE it, has launched a ‘Superhero Academy’ in a bid to increase children’s confidence, social awareness, safety and fitness.
The company delivers personal accredited and non accredited workshops and courses in educational establishments, charities, businesses and not-for-profit organisations empowering individuals to stay safe.
The launch of the Superhero Academy follows the success of RESOLVE it’s partnership with Howell’s School in Cardiff, where it has delivered training sessions to pupils on healthy relationships, conflict resolution, e-safety, substance misuse and bullying.
Eira Culverwell, managing director of RESOLVE it, said: “The academy is designed to teach young people strategies in how to stay safe using our four main principles; awareness, avoidance, dialogue and action, through interactive workbooks and personal safety and self defence techniques.
“The goal of personal safety is not to put yourself in potentially dangerous situations. Using physical action is the last resort.”
The Superhero Academy, suitable for children between the ages of 7-10, will be a series of rolling six week workshops during term time.
Children will progress through 8 stages of the Superhero Academy with the help of the 16 superheroes, representative of the topics within each stage.
Sally Davis, Principal at Howell’s school, said: “Young people face many social challenges from cyber bullying to peer pressure so it’s essential that they are equipped with the knowledge to identify risks and techniques to handle any challenging situations. With great initiatives like the Superhero Academy, the team at RESOLVE it prove they really understand how to engage with students and discuss serious topics but in a fun and creative way.
“All of the students that they have worked with at Howell’s have really enjoyed the interactive sessions and we have noticed a significant improvement in their confidence and self-awareness. We’re looking forward to opening our doors for the Superhero Academy and hope lots of parents and children will take advantage of these sessions.”
