With curriculum time getting busier and busier, a great way to inspire and empower students is before and after school with extracurricular programs for students. Our after school programs are fantastic at doing this and allow us to get students thinking big and focussing on cross-curricular, project-based learning as they tackle challenges, build skills and work on projects that get them thinking about the world around them and the exciting opportunities open to their generation.
With everything from designing future cities to launching influencer brands, building businesses, working with technology and more, we have a range of standard programs to choose from, or we're able to customise a program to your school community. Our after school programs typically run for 6-8 weeks and cost $30 per student per week.
Helping You Deliver Real, Relevant And Relatable Learning Experiences For Your Students
When it comes to delivering real, relevant and relatable learning experiences for young people around the pillars of entrepreneurship, innovation, STEM and the future of work, there is a lot that goes into research, design and delivery.
If you're looking to reimagine a unit of work with a focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, STEM or industry, our team have the ability to build and deliver lesson plans or full units of work for your team to deliver in the classroom.
Each unit would be developed specifically for your school community and would see our team delivering lesson plans, slides, classroom resources, and recommendations on assessment items for your classroom teachers to deliver to students.
This is a great way to start showing your team how they can incorporate future focussed learning experiences into the classroom, whilst also getting them comfortable with inquiry-based learning.
Our team always work hard to tailor each project to our client and we ensure that two bodies of work never appear the same. When it comes to our curriculum design and consulting work, we often find the following projects to be the most popular:
When it comes to increasing a school's focus on 21st century skills, it's essential that there is a common language and understanding amongst parents, teachers and students in the school community.
With our 'Skill Profile' development, we will work with your team to develop a series of skill profiles to showcase what new and emerging skills look like in your school community.
The key deliverable for this project is a PDF resource for each skill highlighting the following:
- A definition of what this skill looks like in your school community.
- A set of 5-10 key sub-skills with definitions and examples of where they are taught.
Examples of STEM and non-STEM pathways students can follow using these skills.
3-5 Micro-influencer profiles showcasing young people in the industry that embody these skills.
Self Paced Programs
A great way to get students further developing their skills in specific interest areas is by developing a school-wide resource of self-paced online programs.
Hosted on the school's learning management system, we can develop and deliver programs on a range of topics around business, leadership, community engagement, STEM and the future of work.
As well as building new programs, we can also 'boppify' existing programs to make them more real, relevant and relatable with fresh case studies, resources and activities.
The key deliverable for this project would be a series of self-paced courses for students. These would include:
- Resources such as videos, websites and blog posts for students to consume.
- Challenges and activities for students to develop and showcase their skills.
Micro-credentials for students that have completed these courses.
Lesson Plan Development
If you're looking for a way to refresh your units of work, our lesson plan developments are perfect for you!
This will see our team developing a set of lessons for your teachers to deliver in the classroom on a set topic or theme. For example, we might build out a 10 week entrepreneurship program for your team to deliver, or a future cities unit of work, or perhaps an industry innovation challenge.
This is a great way to empower your teachers to deliver new units of work on 21st century skills.
The key deliverable for this project is a full unit of work ready to be delivered by your teachers. This included:
- Lesson plans for each session.
- Slides, resources and templates for each lesson.
Training and support from the BOP team as you deliver the program.
Classroom resources are a teachers best friend and can be a massive help to engage students, emphasise skills and values, or deliver units of work in a new and innovative way.
At BOP we work hard to develop a diverse range of classroom resources for our programs. Our team develop everything from posters to templates, activity packs, infographics and more.
If you're looking to have a resource, or suite of resources developed for your teachers, make sure to chat to our team to see if we can design and deliver a resource for your school.
The key deliverable for this would be a PDF resource for your desired purpose. As part of the development our team would:
- Work with you to identify the purpose and intended use for the resource.
- Research and finalise the content for the resource.
- Work with you to draft the design and the content for the resource.
The BOP Team are delivering future focussed learning experiences across the country almost every day of the year. As we work hard to tailor programs to every school, audience and community, no two programs look the same. Here are some of our recent programs:
Classroom Career Resources
Working with the team at Kelvin Grove State College we created a series of posters, cards and classroom resources to help showcase careers for students at their career expo.
21st Century Skill Profiles
We teamed up with the Indooroopilly State High School team to Co-Design a set of four 21st century skill profiles for teachers, parents and students in the school community.
Deep Learning Projects
We teamed up with the teachers at the Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College to develop 2 x 10 week long deep learning programs for their teachers to deliver in the classroom.
Self Paced Leadership Programs
Working with Methodist Ladies' College, Claremont we developed a series of contemporary leadership programs for students from grades 5-12.
At BOP create programs, resources and units of work on a daily basis as we work with students across the country and around the world. With a passion for designing real, relevant and relatable learning experiences and eye-catching resources, we would love to see how we could work with your team to inspire and empower your students.
