Mindshop Excellence Program

The Mindshop Excellence Program is a five-day research work experience, aimed at Year 10 students.

Mindshop Facilitators and community/industry trained Facilitators donate their time and expertise to train groups of 4-6 students in basic Mindshop business improvement tools and processes including team work, strategic thinking, goal setting, mind mapping, brainstorming, flow charting, cause and effect analysis, public speaking, motivation and self esteem. Host organisations provide an issue for the students to solve and a suitable work place environment. The Mindshop Facilitator and staff from the Host Organisation provide regular monitoring and mentoring.

The highlight of the week is the Presentation, which the students give to the management of the Host Organisation on the Friday afternoon. The Mindshop group presents and discusses their solutions to the problem. In many cases the Host Organisation has adopted the recommendations made by the group of students.
