STARDOM is a 12 week intervention programme for girls that are seriously derailing. It is intensive and frame-breaking, run by highly qualified coaches using an array of personal development and transformation tools including Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Time Line Therapy™. These tools are used to shift mindsets, zap limiting beliefs, reframe past experiences, uncover identity issues, break limiting family patterns and encourage the girls to think big via visualisation and motivational strategies.
The minimum age to participate in Stardom is 15, typically Year 10 girls who are bright but may be disengaging from school at the critical time and therefore are in danger of falling into NEET group.
Stardom is made up of a 3 hour weekly group session, 4 one to one coaching sessions throughout the 12 weeks with an NLP Life coach, input from role model presenters, journal writing and a series of self assessment tools.
The overall aim is to raise the aspirations, self esteem and self belief of the girls which, in effect will improve GCSE performance in most cases.
The focus is on aspirations not exams; causes not symptoms; action not reflection.
The minimum number of girls on a Stardom programme is 10, the maximum 16. A careful selection process is needed to ensure success. This is an intervention NOT a counselling programme. It is about raising aspirations, therefore, it is not wise to nominate girls with serious social/psychological problems already being managed by external agencies and school counselling services.
IDEAL STARDOM PARTICIPANT:
A young girl age 15/16 who has the potential to achieve a minimum of 5 GCSE’s grades A-C but has started to disengage from the academic process and is showing signs of stress, disinterest, anti-social behaviour, truancy, apathy and low self esteem.
She is likely to be coping with one of more of the following personal challenges –
- Lack of any positive role model at home and no concept of success/achievement.
- No history of higher education in the family therefore no support or understanding.
- Relationship challenges with parents, guardians, siblings, boyfriend, peers, teachers and friends.
- Lack of aspiration due to point one and ingrained family patterns.
- Not able to express or articulate HER needs leading to a sense of disempowerment and disconnection.
- Too much emphasis on external validation via appearance, behaviour and obsessive tendencies.
