Introduction to Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school

  1. 1. Introduction to Les Rodanes Parc Natural and our English school ‘A unique and different approach for the Valencian Community’ What is the Les Rodanes Parc Natural English School? A life-changing experience. A fun time with friends. An opportunity to discover a new language, interests and talents. A tool to develop essential skills for life and work. A recognised mark of achievement; respected by employers. The Les Rodanes Parc Natural is many things to many people, supporting generations to successfully navigate adult life. Your path to learning English, step by step from 3 to 65-year-olds can take part in a Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school programme at one of our progressive levels: Beginners, Starters, Movers and Flyers which, when successfully completed, leads to official Cambridge English Qualifications, our in-depth English exams that make learning English enjoyable, effective and rewarding. Our unique approach encourages continuous progression with a clear path to improve English language skills. Other benefits also include helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning and training for a better future. Any young person or adult can do their Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school awards – regardless of ability, gender, background or location. Achieving an Award isn’t a competition or about being first. It’s all about setting personal challenges and pushing personal boundaries. Through the Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school programme young and old people will have fun, make friends, improve their self-esteem and build confidence. They gain essential skills and attributes for work and life such as resilience, problem-solving, teamwork, communication and personal determination, enhancing CVs, University and job applications, even to starting your own business. We will support you all the way.
  2. 2. Participants Young people develop a whole range of skills and attributes such as resilience, confidence, commitment, drive, self-awareness, empathy, team working and problem solving, which support them in navigating adult life. Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school will give you a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in the school, do not get to do. It’s about having fun learning English and activities with good friends.’ Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school builds and develops people’s confidence, English skills, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their creativity, beliefs and attitudes. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice. Students and adults are encouraged to work together to take the lead on all sorts of projects, ranging from community-based activities to planning games and targeted programs for their English classes. We can be flexible for our participants with special needs. Activities All participants are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their English learning process programme from basic English skills, to advanced English skills via a number of activities such as camping, horse riding, observing nature as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to orienteering.
  3. 3. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of badges and awards that the Beginners, Starters, Movers and Flyers Initiative can gain to recognise their achievements. Activity award badges Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow the Beginners, Starters, Movers and Flyers Initiative to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests while learning English.

Leadership Activity Badge Media Relations and Marketing Activity Badge Mountain Biking Activity Badge Naturalist Activity Badge Physical Recreation Activity Badge Pioneer Activity Badge Survival Skills Activity Badge Science and Technology Activity Badge Plus, much more… Challenge awards and recognising achievement To keep people motivated and recognise their achievements we have our own challenge awards and certificates. Gaining a challenge award involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the group. There are several challenge awards across a number of themes, from physical and outdoor challenges, to dealing with the local community and even issues directly connected with the English language. To help us suitably recognise the accomplishments of our participants in a fun and engaging way, we’ve compiled some guidelines below. Good behaviour Student of the week/month: Such recognition and status will provide that person with a sense of pride and appreciation. It will not only encourage them and others but it will help them maintain a steady progression. Tokens: Award our Student(s) a token. These tokens show your activity and Group logo printed on a laminated card. For each token received, they are a step closer to obtaining the grand prize, which could be a trophy, certificate or badge. To reward our people a badge for good behaviour, is a perfect idea for the Beginners, Starters, Movers and Flyers Initiative, and makes it fun and

Conquering fears Certificates: customised for conquering fears for specific activities. Age range guidelines The opportunity for a person to progress through the sections within our English school is fundamental. All people should be encouraged to move into the next section, or near to the core age range of the section and level of English. The Programme and awards for each section have been designed with these core age ranges in mind, and have been developed primarily for participation and involvement with the required flexibility to allow all young and old to enjoy and achieve. It is important that the needs and interests of any person and particularly those with special needs are kept in mind and regularly reviewed. We will continue to identify occasions where further flexibility may be required to enable full participation in the Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school. It is essential that leaders talk to each other and share information. This might cover information about a specific special need, medical information, participation in the Programme, personal likes and dislikes. All discussions should be held with the appropriate responsible person. There is already flexibility in the age ranges for moving from one Section to the next. Section Age Range Flexibility Little Squirrels Nature Club 3 - 8 years old 2 and a half and up to 8 ½ years old Beginners – Starters and Movers. 8 - 18 years old 7 to 18 years old Flyers 18 - 65 years old 17 and up to 65 years old There may be occasions when it will be appropriate to further extend this flexibility. For example, the Managing Director of the school may permit a young person to be in a Section outside of the recommended age range, due to a young person's additional needs and/or disability. The exception to this is that on turning 18, all Students must move into the Flyers Network or, if appropriate, apply for an adult volunteer role via the standard appointments process. At 18, an individual is legally an adult and cannot be in a youth Section. Discussing age range flexibility The decision to request age range flexibility should be in consultation with the parent/ carer, the young person and with a local volunteer holding an inclusionary role. In all cases the decision should be based upon enabling that person to fully participate within Les Rodanes Parc Natural English school. The decision should be approved by the Managing Director and should be reviewed annually.
