What is SHINE?

Global Oak Tree Scholars (G.O.T.S) SHINE Programme is officially the first experiential Emotional Intelligence (EQ) focused training framework in SouthEast Asia (SEA).


Designed by training & coaching experts who come from industry, this program is focused on competencies, not just theories. SHINE is a framework developed to scale according to the audience. Flexible in terms of how lesson plans may be delivered to children between 5-12 years old. One of the crucial elements of SHINE is, less lecturing, more doing. Every SHINE class is an experience, with a singular focus and underlying truth about life to be learnt through play by the kids.


SHINE is designed specifically to develop a sense of self within a child. There is a big difference between being Childish vs. Child-like. Kids will learn this in SHINE. Group-activities, role-play, Q&A, games, and confidence-building initiatives are all part of SHINE’s training methodology.


(S)ocial, (H)umble, (I)maginative, (N)etwork, (E)ffective — moulding your child to be committed to life’s core values that will accelerate his or her journey towards industry or entrepreneurial success.
