1. Creating Success 


Learning from role models and successful people about what it takes to achieve their goals and using this knowledge to set their own goals.


1.1 – Success Stories

Students hear the stories of successful people, create a success map that shows the steps they took, recognise the level of hard work, focus and support they needed and begin to identify what they might want to achieve in their own lives.

1.2 – Qualities for Success

Students identify the qualities, attributes and skills that underpin a successful life and the importance of starting their journey early.

1.3 – Seeing My Success

Students have the opportunity to practice the skills of visualisation, learn what it means to be more proactive in creating opportunities to succeed, identify what they enjoy doing and to be able to explain why they get enjoyment from it.

1.4 – Planning My Success

Students will learn to create a plan for achieving short and long-term goals, understand the importance of goal setting and that successful people make plans.

1.5 – Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

Students will recognise what holds them back from trying new things, identify the benefits of taking appropriate risks and devise ways of creating new positive habits.

1.6 – Facing My Fears

Students will have the chance to deepen their knowledge of the reasons why people stay in their comfort zones and how this limits their performance.

Each lesson includes a detailed lesson plan, student worksheet, PowerPoint and in some cases video and can be adapted to meet your needs. You can use the lesson plans fully or take some of the exercises included and add them to your own lessons…the choice is yours.




Having undertaken these lessons the students will;

  • Have studied successful people and learnt their secrets
  • Understand the qualities, skills and values of successful people
  • Be able to apply this in their own life and learning
  • Be able to visualise their own success and develop this skill for the long-term
  • Be able to set goals and create a success map to support them in achieving their success

All lessons have been written to be delivered in one or more hour periods and are adaptable so they can be delivered in smaller chunks suitable for tutor/mentor time or shorter lessons.  Depending on the depth to which the lesson is taken and the ability range of the students you may want to extend some lessons beyond the time suggested.

All lessons have extension or home learning tasks and the programme has sufficient material to run over a whole school year (around 80 hours).

Alternatively, the lessons can all be run independently and are suitable to be delivered by non-specialist and cover staff.  You can use them to support or run alongside existing programmes or to enhance a project you are undertaking or to support learning in a particular area or subject.  They also lend themselves to being used as enrichment days, where you can use groups of lessons to support a full or half days activities.
