What are the Standard Stages of Student Leadership Programs as per Age?

by James Spencer Blogger
Over the years, it has turned out to be quite crucial for students to develop leadership skills from an early age. It's good to see that schools are taking the leadership programs on a serious note in Australia.

"School leadership programs must be integrated with the schooling system from the early stage to get effective results. Even the ankle biters are required to be introduced to the leadership programs that will plant the seed of leadership skills from a tender age." said by Mr Williams, an educator at a high school in Gold Coast.

However, introducing the students with the leadership development programs abruptly is never an ideal approach. "It has to be sequential and must be developed according to the age of the students for the maximum impact." commented by Ethan, an instructor in a pre-school. True he is.

Maintaining a sequence is the key to success for every school leadership programs. That is where the experts associated with student leadership in Sunshine Coast plays the most pivotal role indeed. They develop a properly structured program based on the age group of the students they are getting associated with.

Here is a highlight on the different stages of children leadership building that will divide the age group perfectly.

Students of 5-6 Years Old - The Preparation

Evidently, this is the introductory phase where children are introduced to the leadership program. Of course, they are not fully aware of the aspects of leadership at this tender age. So, it's more about developing the children and making them mentally compatible with the next stage is the crucial aspect.

They are made aware of the skill of trusting each other, communicating and collaborating with them and of course respecting each other. Moreover, the skills of presenting, sharing, facilitating, taking charge of things and handing over the responsibilities when needed, are being developed among the children.

Students of 7-9 Years Old - The Personal Skill Development

It's the time when students are exposed to and get involved in personal skill development. According to the experts assisting in developing the skills of team building in Gold Coast, it is crucial for the students to have self-awareness and self-esteem to provide respect to the others. Working on personal excellence, developing interpersonal skills, self-confidence along with an introduction to digital leadership, social justice is some of the critical attributes of this stage.

Students of 10-12 Years Old - A Step to Excellence

It is the stage where students start developing an understanding towards employability, vision dreaming and assessing performance indicators. At this point, the students are taken to the leadership camps and workshops to have a glimpse of how leaders have changed the world over the decades. Along with role modelling and facilitating, students develop strong morale at this stage.

Final Thought

So, these are the stages, rather the stages of final preparation to fit in the real world entirely. It is the practice that develops lifelong character habits among the students that give them an upper hand in their future. This program binds the students in discipline and at the same time make them learn that when they have to be flexible. So, every student of this age group must be a part of this program to get extended benefits.
