Led by SILC trainers this is an enriching and fun opportunity to learn and enhance valuable leadership skills through interactive games and activities, on and off campus, during which students learn a variety of practical skills. All students finish the camp with a personal action plan identifying the skills they would like to improve and describe how to accomplish their goals based on their experiences during the conference. Each student will also receive a certificate of participation.

The SILC Academy collaborates with world-class organisations to teach students relevant 21st Century skills, while participating in exciting games and challenges based on a curricular framework developed with some of the top private schools around the world. Evaluations based on our measurable learning outcomes and performed by SILC and partner schools show that students apply our portfolio of 21st Century skills in their daily lives, at school, sports and when applying to university.
Students take the lead and enjoy interactive and high-energy team challenges that not only develop their leadership ability, but also refine communication, teamwork and planning skills that help them to succeed both in the classroom and their exams. Each participant receives our pedagogically aligned Personal Action Plan at the end of the conference - a tool that has proven to help students with academic performance.

The SILC Academy programme, with its emphasis on time management, goal setting and positive mindsets, encourages students to thrive in challenging environments By applying the competencies we instil even students who are not traditionally academic find that tests and exams are not something to be feared, but simply another challenge to be overcome on the road to achieving their goals.
