THE ‘BOTH, AND’ MODEL

THE NEED

A recent study* demonstrated that whilst the current generation has the knowledge and awareness about global issues, they feel a lack of agency to act on their concern for the greater good. If any action taken, it is more by chance and not by design.

This gap is often the outcome of an either, or model of learning – where schools defer the importance of building a culture of empowerment amid the pressures of academic performance as a measure of success.

WHAT IF

there was an approach to learning that intentionally empowered all children with a deep belief that the purpose of education is to graduate young citizen leaders – with content AND character, passion AND compassion - the ‘both, and’ model.

INTRODUCING THE
I CAN SCHOOL

The I CAN School is set of training programmes created by RLC to move a school from an ‘Either, Or' to a 'BOTH, AND' model. Each programme is designed using a systems approach to intentionally cultivate the I CAN MINDSET in children.

RLC takes it's inspiration from The Riverside School, which has used the design thinking framework of Feel / Imagine / Do / Share™ to design processes and practices that are timetabled to build a culture of empowerment. These processes have been globally recognized and successfully implemented in schools across the world.

BUILDING THE I CAN MINDSET. BY DESIGN

THE HUMANEFRAMEWORK

Over the last 20 years, The Riverside School has designed and refined a set of processes and practices to build a HumanE culture, which in turn graduates children with the I CAN MINDSET.

RLC has codified these processes and curated them under the 6 Pillars that make up any school ecosystem. Using these processes, RLC has designed the I CAN PROGRAMMES to empower schools to intentionally timetable a BOTH, AND model and become an I CAN SCHOOL.

HUMAN TO HUMANE

WHAT IS THE
I CAN MINDSET

The I CAN MINDSET is a set of beliefs, skills and attitudes that are fostered and nurtured over time to shape young global citizen leaders who are:

AWARE of the world around them
ENABLED with skills to make change and
EMPOWERED to design a more desired, sustainable future for the greater good

This mindset is nourished by the values of Empathy / Ethics / Excellence / Elevation and Evolution – the 5 E’s that move us from being ‘Human to HumanE’
