GTE Junior Giants


GTE Junior Giants

This division of Grooming The Executive (GTE) puts the spotlight on young creative minds. It looks at children who are still in the Basic Education learning space. This programme runs between May to October of every year (registrations start from April of every year). It is for children between the ages 10 -18 years.

The programme seeks to:

  • Educate parents on the importance of recognizing and embracing the unique strengths of their child
  • Encourage exploration of self-awareness and focus on self-development for our future leaders
  • Guide candidates to identify their own individual strengths (conventional or not) and harness these into pathways that will lead to rewarding careers as business people and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

Through the programme, GTE introduces core transferable skills such as effective time management, setting of goals and how to achieve them, self-confidence and business etiquette etc.

This would enable candidates to optimize their time and fully utilize the energy needed to flourish in life and in their journey towards their chosen business pursuit (and careers)

Through a unique yet relevant and carefully tailored Programme, GTE’s Junior Giants focus on introducing young giants into the world of business, and developing essential skills in them, that are needed to flourish in this challenging yet rewarding space.

Children (of all ages) are guided and mentored on:

  • how to identify their individual strengths and talents,
  • developing into confident and all rounded business men and women of tomorrow
  • handling real life business and entrepreneurship opportunities and challenges

In the same vein as a child taking extra lessons in Maths, English or Science, GTE’s Junior Giants Programme is offered after school as a supplementary extra-mural, focusing on practical business training and exposure.

  • Stage 1: General personal development and personal mastery: (1 month – 4 lessons a week)
  • Stage 2: The world of business (1 month – 4 lessons)
  • Stage 3: Business of the season (each season there would be a business partnered with, that candidates would focus on. This is the business in which they will enjoy equal equity participation)

The Classes are divided into the following age groups, and the candidates should be in the following grades (Grade 7 – Grade 12). GTE encourages parents to be mindful of the participation of grade 12 candidates, and not disturb their already demanding academic work load.

Candidate would be grouped in the following age categories, subject to sufficient number of candidates per season

  • 10-12 Years
