Shield of Endeavour
The Shield of Endeavour is the Academy’ programme for developing Life Skills in our fencers, using opportunities and experiences in our fencing classes to develop our Fencer’s emotional intelligence.
Our 10 Life Skills
(offical videos coming soon! 15/04/20)
How the Shield works
Bronze – Inform
To acheive the Bronze level, Fencer’s will need to watch each video and complete the activity set out in the video. The Bronze level is all about gathering the information.
Bronze Attendance – attend all zoom classes for 1 term
Silver – Understand
To achieve the Silver level, Fencer’s will need to complete specific exercises and activities which are designed to use these skills in a way that the Fence gets a deeper understanding of their emotional intelligence.
Silver Attendance – take part in one of our Fencing Card competitions (coming soon) and attend a full term of zoom lessons
Gold – Implement
To achieve the Gold level, Fencer’s will need to provide examples from the wider world when they used these one of these life skills. They can record these experiences in a document of their choosing and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org once they have completed them.
Gold Attendance – Complete Bronze and Silver and help promote the Academy either via social media or your own innovative way
