Mole Valley Making of a Champion®

A programme for high performance living

The Making of a Champion® (MOC) is a personal development course from Leadership Management International (LMI) designed to help young people reach their full potential. LMI was established in the 1960s and has worked with hundreds of thousands of leaders and managers across more than 80 countries, making us one of the world’s oldest and most successful people development organisations.

All this wealth of experience has gone into the creation of the MOC programme that can help launch Mole Valley young people into the future they desire and are capable of.

The Mole Valley Making of a Champion programme is delivered in partnership with Mole Valley Employment and Skills Hub and Mole Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The Making of a Champion programme can provide up to 60 hours of Off-The-Job-Training for those currently on apprenticeships.

MOC covers many of the major ‘life skills’ subject areas that employers are continually saying young people need to develop in order to be successful in their chosen vocation, in their relationships and in fulfilling their potential. In addition, participants are also provided with LMI’s world class planning & goal setting tools which significantly impacts their personal effectiveness.

The MOC programmes contains 10 modules  delivered over 10 weeks, with participants working on each lesson for a week, coming together with the whole group for a 90 minute weekly review & application workshop. These workshops are dynamic, interactive sessions where participants are able to express their ideas, feedback on how they have been inspired and what actions they have taken. Participation in these sessions helps develop confidence and identify specific ways to implement the ideas in their work and personal life.

“The Making A Champion Programme is pitched perfectly at instilling the skill set young people need to be successful in any walk of life; from self reflection, goal setting, motivation, self belief and planning this programme covers it all and all are equally fundamental to becoming successful as your own champion. Through this programme I’ve seen Tegan in particular grow and develop so much…her ability to self reflect, the growth in her self-confidence and how she now holds herself; it has been amazing to watch.”

Tina Stewart, Celtic FC Girls Academy Manager

MOC modules

“At the time I was studying for my A Levels. MOC was perfect at this time as it helped me keep a positive and focused mindset proving that a “positive attitude leads to positive results.”

Since completing MOC I have passed my driving test first time, got 3 A’s at A Level, allowing me to get into my first choice University. I achieved over a 1st overall in my first year at Uni.

I would highly recommend the programme as it allows you to evaluate how you approached challenges in the past, giving you the opportunity to achieve more by simply adjusting your mindset.”

– Rachel Cemlyn-Jones, A-Level Student

The course was well received and had positive benefits to all of the students, particularly in terms of encouraging greater self-reflection and on their approach to studying. It was really easy to work with the course facilitator and LMI and it is hoped further courses will be able to be held in the coming years.
