COSAT Wellness Centre EQUEST Programme

7 May 2017 - 16:15

The COSAT Wellness Centre (CWC) has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Bryan Opert (Quantum Growth) in a series of workshops based on their EQUEST programme. EQUEST address the CWC’s personal and developmental vision of the CWC, empowering learners to develop self-knowledge and leadership skills. The 2016/2017 cohort comprised the 16 members of the Student Leadership Council.

As their journey came to an end a workshop, facilitated by Byan Opert was held on the 27th of April, to reflect on their process to date. It also focused on setting goals using S.M.A.R.T goals and the Lumina GROWS model. The learners were divided into triads and quads with each group crafting and presenting a goal for the Student Leadership Council's final two months.  As one student suggested, this workshop will be presented in future at the beginning of the programme so that it can expose students “to the principles of goal setting” – feedback that indicates the level of involvement and passion that learners experienced from the programme.
