Children playing tug of war

Education

Some would say our most important years of all!

Our education workshops, talks and sessions have achieved:

  • A 16% rise in staff happiness, after just two one-hour sessions
  • A 19% increase in staff confidence, after just two one-hour sessions
  • 95% of staff are inspired to do something differently in the school environment
  • 67% of pupils feel more positive about themselves and school after just 3 hours of Meee
  • 66% of pupils felt less worried about being different
  • Our sessions are described as Helpful; Empowering; Positive; Vital Brilliant; Awesome; Sic

It can seem as though education in the UK is all about exams, results and beating the competition. Many young people feel under increasing amounts of pressure and - as a result - ideas, innovation and creativity can go unrecognised. It’s more important than ever for programmes such as Meee to support and empower students - at every age.

What we offer

What does education really mean? Is it about grades, exams and qualifications? Or is it something deeper: about the wellbeing, happiness and fulfilment of each person? At Meee, we work with teachers, staff, students and pupils to look beyond the constraints of the national curriculum, data tables and targets. Here’s how we do it:

Our Education programmes cover primary, secondary, higher and further education.

What people say about our Teacher and Staff Workshops

They make the sessions enjoyable and the pupils feel comfortable and at ease to express themselves and their thoughts. It is clear from the pupils responses that they were fully engaged with the sessions and would take part again at the drop of a hat.

Sid’s passion and down to earth approach to staff development was refreshing and had a remarkable effect on my staff’s drive and enthusiasm...he revived in them the reason they came into the profession in the first place.

Bridging the skills gap

Meee Education Workshop

Another side of exam results based education is that soft skills prized by employees - from listening, teamwork, and speaking to people confidently - often fall by the wayside. Not only does this damage young people’s employment prospects and impact the wider economy - it’s also affecting students’ wellbeing. Anxiety-related disorders are on the rise while truancy is a major problem. Many feel they don’t fit in the traditional academic model. And that’s leading to young people with low self-worth, confidence and determination to succeed.

It’s a square peg, round hole situation. But by encouraging students to focus on their unique skills and set individual goals, Meee reignites their sense of purpose and sets them on a personal path to employment. In turn, that can have a positive knock-on effect in the classroom to the family home - and throughout society as a whole.

Because we understand that everyone is an individual, we know that varying styles of education resonate differently with each of us. For instance, while a university course might be right for some young people, others will get the most value out of an apprenticeship. So we help them discover where their interests lie, what they want to be - and the best path to get there. By encouraging students to unlock what motivates them at an early stage, we hope that more and more will go on to complete further education and training, and begin the careers they want.
