SEK Education Group, internationally recognised as a pioneer in the field of educational innovation, personalised teaching and attention to diversity both in the classroom and in other fields, launched the Stellar Programme over 25 years ago, a model of scientific, social and personal enrichment for high-achieving and talented students. Throughout its long history, the programme has scientifically proven its effectiveness through generations of students.

Therefore, based on this, we offer high achieving children and young people interested in Sciences, Arts or Social Sciences interactive online courses that will be a meeting point for students from different areas and territories, fostering relationships and social and emotional development as well as new forms of learning.

Name of course Lettering Creative writing

Description Creative writing is a creative process through which students are able to invent stories, express their feelings, thoughts and emotions.

It is a powerful tool to lay the foundation for cognitive development. Creative writing is not only helps children improve motor skills, spelling and vocabulary, but also helps them retain information, enhances learning and neurodevelopment, stimulating their neural circuits and also helps them develop empathy, listening skills, concentration, reflection and the management of other people’s opinions, both positive and negative.
