THE SCHOOL OF STUFF THAT MATTERS
Belinda Jennings

As an adult I realised that school never prepared me for life. I wasn't equipped for having rocking relationships, managing my money or looking after my body and mind. Or surviving a pandemic.

I started my own online school because I believe for a really fulfilling life young people need more time to explore themselves, relationships, health and wellbeing... and less of algebra and volcanoes.

REBEL STARSEEDS
Bec Coldicutt

Bec Coldicutt is a teacher, youth mentor, certified life coach, and Reiki Master/Teacher. Inspired by what she was seeing in her classroom and beyond, Bec was called to create Rebel Starseeds; a deeply heart-focused business helping girls learn that intelligent, purposeful rebellion leads to an empowered and inspiring life! She works with girls to help them learn self-empowerment, discover the real meaning of self-love, and bounce out of those limiting belief patterns we tend to find ourselves in.

Through Rebel Starseeds and her work in schools, Bec provides workshops, programmes and one-on-one mentoring to girls and their families. Bec also teaches Reiki as a powerful tool for self-love and healing.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is included?

The first online class purchase includes login details for the student's members portal, which is personalised to each student. It includes links to join the classes that have been purchased, additional free resources to download and will showcase new classes coming up. These can be purchased from the members portal.

Email support is also provided to ensure that students are reminded of when a live class is about to start and any suggested pre-work they may like to do before hand. An email will also be provided to the parents/guardian (or whoever purchased the classes) with information about the class in case you wish to create further discussion at home to deepen the learning. 

What age are the classes for?

The classes are great for anyone aged 10 through to 18.  We get a variety of ages in each class and our facilitators are experienced in navigating what comes up from each student to ensure it's supportive and nurturing for everyone. 

How long do the classes go for?

Each class will go for approximately one hour. 

Who are the facilitators?

The facilitators and support personnel on all live classes have gone through a rigorous application process, training and continued support and up-skilling. They have completed 4 months and 60+ hours of our award-winning Youth Mentor Training in addition to the many skills and expertise they already have in their chosen fields. The Youth Mentor Training covers duty of care, understanding teen psychology, engagement in a fun, nurturing and supportive way, being aware of what to look out for with more serious issues and more.

While not legally required to facilitate online classes in this way, our facilitators must have a current working with children check (or equivalent for their country and state), must have completed a number of implicit bias tests to ensure they are inclusive and self-aware and must abide by our very detailed Code of Conduct to ensure the privacy, safety and hopefully enjoyment of each of our students. If you would like more information on any of this or to see a copy of our Code of Conduct, please email info@shinefromwithin.com.au

Our facilitators come from all over the world including Nigeria, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong and the UK and represent a variety of cultural and social identities. 

Do you offer refunds?
No there are no refunds for the classes other than where mandatory by consumer laws. We organise additional support youth mentors and pay our facilitators based on the number of bookings received for each class. If your young person is not happy with a class we welcome your feedback and would love to have a conversation with you about other ways we may be able to support you.
Can parents attend the classes?
No. Parents are welcome to watch the recordings but we'd prefer to keep the classes as parent-free zones so the young people feel more comfortable having open and honest conversations (if they choose to participate - they're welcome just to attend!). Parts of the classes will be recorded which parents are welcome to watch but these recordings will not include group discussions. We have set it up this way in order to protect all of our students. 
Can I view the classes on my phone?
Absolutely! We'll use Zoom for the live classes which works great on your laptop, tablet or mobile phone. We've got links to supporting docs if you have any troubles joining in the member's portal. 
What if I can't make it live?
No problems! While we encourage everyone to join live so they can participate in group discussions, we'll record the content part of the class so you can watch it whenever it suits you.
