Character and Lifeskills Links and Videos in description

Endorsed by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the “world’s greatest living explorer”, our unique character education curriculum is designed to ensure every child reaches their full potential. Based on the lives of real-life adventurers and explorers, such as Sir Ranulph and Tim Peake, we have designed a complete package of lessons and online support that is ready to go in your school today and form part of your curriculum. Pupils learn about a different hero or heroine over each term, with practical and mental tasks to complete based on their adventures. Designed with educationalists, each lesson is structured to give pupils the character tools and values they need to be successful in life such as resilience, determination, empathy, and courage. Lessons are supported with “field report” films featuring Commando Joe, developed by a Bafta-winning animation company. Plus, a whole website of dedicated resources, support, celebration and reflection materials tools. Choose between enlisting one of our Commando Joe’s instructors to deliver the course in school, or our new school-led package with full training and support for your staff to deliver our character education curriculum themselves. Either way, we are confident that when it comes to Character Education, this is the best of the best.
