igoals9 - School Mindset Platform

 

Encouraging and supporting children to set and achieve goals is one of the best ways we can nurture a child’s expectations and fulfil their potential.

 

The igoals9 Mindset platform provides a quick online process for children to set, reflect, plan and record the achievement of their goals.

 

The iMentors Services Mindset platform enables the mentor (whether Teacher, parent, or other) to measure the rate of achievement of self-determined goals and identifies any areas of concern which may indicate the child needs additional support.

 

The Mentor can identify which goals or aspects in a child’s life require ‘nurturing’. The School Mentor Platform enables the mentor to track changes and encourage or acknowledge, the growth the child is making. The goals can be set to suit individual, school or group needs and easily modified as required. The program can empower and sustain the desire for achievement and clearly indicate the areas requiring nurturing, magnify children’s abilities and allowing them to be the best they can be.
