"Even a child is known by his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right.."

.

(PROVERBS 20:11)

Character building is the most important work ever entrusted to human beings; and never before was its diligent study so important as now. Never was any previous generation called to meet issues so momentous; never before were young men and young women confronted by perils so great as confront them today. (Education 225).

 

In response to this great need, we offer a range of seminar series, focussing on various aspects of character development. Common challenges that parent face with their children like obedience and discipline are addressed. Our seminars reveal how biblical principles of character development can be practically applied to the individual child enabling them to develope a high quality of consistent Christian character.

 

Each seminar session lasts for about 2 hours. Seminars are generally put on at the venue of participants, e.g. church, school, community hall etc. Our seminar series are for anyone involved in the character development and education of children and young people—parents, guardians, other relatives, teachers, church leaders, community leaders etc.

 

Please note: Seminars will be available online from early 2017.

This seminar series is a survey of some key elements in character building. Important underlying principles are identified and it shows how the will of the child can be engaged at each stage in their character building.

Will my children do better if I get them into formal learning as early as possible? How well do young children manage in the school environment?

This seminare series looks at the the development of young children and how well equipped they are emotionally, socially and pschologically to cope with formal learning. It exposes some of the misconceptions about the need and the ability of young children to get ahead by starting early. A biblical approach to more natural and organic child deveopment is presented as a way forward.

 

 

 

Why is it so hard for my little one to get used to school? Why do my teenagers seem so detached from me and in their own world?

 

In this seminar, you will learn how children develop strong attachments with their parents, especially in the early years. Then you will see how school can affect this attachment and lead to children becoming dependent on other adults like teachers and their peers. The biblical approach to healthy parent-child attachment will be considered as the best way forward.

 

 

 

Is it legal to educate my children at home? How would they socialise? Could I ever do as well for my child as trained teachers? Wouldn’t it be isolating my child from society? Isn’t it better for my child to be in school as salt and light?

 

This seminar series considers home education as a viable option for Christian parents. A biblical rationale for home education is presented and its importance and potential. Practical ideas for setting up programmes are presented and the experiences of those who have chosen this option. The historical, legal and procedural aspects of home education are considered.

This seminar series helps to reveal what the true gift of teaching is from a biblical perspective. It shows that to be a teacher is not just about getting the “right” academic qualifications, but being endowed with a gift and calling from God. It will be brought to view that many who work as teachers and who may even be viewed as successful teachers are not really teachers in the highest sense. The work of parents as first teachers is highlighted and its vital importance expounded.

 

 

 

Is genius exclusive to the chosen few? Is every child including your child capable of genius in some area?

Has education in Britain always been secular in nature? What has been the role of the church in the development of education? How did the state gain control of compulsory education? Is it too late for Christianity to shape or impact educational policy and practice?

 

In this seminar, you will learn of the history of education in Britain, the role of the church and how secular education came to the fore. It will also give some insights into how Christian influences can still play a part in education.
