Endeavour Journeys is a specialist UK education provider working exclusively with students across the Asia region, developing core skills through entrepreneurship. Each programme focuses on Teamwork, Leadership, Problem Solving and Communication, balanced with proven theory and academic research. We deliver the programmes through a range of innovative tasks, games and challenges designed to stretch the children’s abilities whilst most importantly learning something new, having fun and making friends.
The programmes are suited to all ages and abilities, we start at 6 years of age and go up to 12 with programmes held over 5 days. They are broken down into ages 6-8 and 9-12 so that we have the right balance of challenge in each programme for the students.
Core Skill Development
We try to spend as much time out of the classroom as in it. Almost all activities and challenges are done as teams with everyone having defined roles and responsibilities. We get to know the students personalities first, their strengths and weaknesses and adapt the programme to help strengthen their weakness and improve upon their strengths.
We teach adult level topics in age appropriate ways. Here we are teaching the students about neuroplasticity through making bread. Neuroplasticity refers to the changes in brain structure as we experience, learn and adapt and that through a range of experiences we become more knowledgeable and our brains grow. We use making bread as a metaphor for this process, to help illustrate the benefits of a well rounded educational and life experience. The students even bring the dough home to make into bread that evening with their parents.
Creativity & Entrepreneurship
We want the students to develop these core human skills without really knowing they are. Here we gave the students a challenge to create an eco-friendly product and sell it to the class and panel of ‘dragon’ investors. The students created clothes from paper, planned and budgeted for their materials, branded and advertised there range and as a team pitched their idea to the class. We are reinforcing a lot of skills and attributes in one task all monitored by our experienced teachers and teaching assistants.
