An Education for Life: Proven Practical Tips and Strategies to Encourage Youth to Achieve Greatness
Robin Cox shares his personal journey to find the most effective and relevant holistic education process to encourage youth to reach their potential. During this search he met retired school principal Peter Barnard who introduced him to a twenty-first century revolutionary education idea which has been implemented in hundreds of schools in recent years. The multi-age Vertical Tutoring System – a significant update from the traditional Vertical Tutoring programs that many will be familiar with – is described in a user-friendly way as Robin shares how he facilitated the implementation of this system at a school in Australia where he was an Assistant Head at the time. He shares the immediate impact and then some of the most important points to understand the power of the Vertical Tutoring System. Robin believes this System can transform New Zealand high or secondary schools and reduce the high levels of anxiety, as well as other antisocial behaviors. He also believes it should be implemented globally to better prepare youth for the world of work, especially in the pandemic and post-pandemic world when a new education narrative is called for. Vertical Tutoring contains so many aspects of the spirit of mentoring, allowing schools to train and equip a new generation of mentors with a positive growth mindset who want to make a positive difference in their communities.
