The 4 C’s Learning Framework

The 4 C’s Learning Framework

To provide guidance and clarity to learners across all of our programs, we have adopted the 4 C’s of Learning. The 4 C’s have been inspired by Jean Cote and Wade Gilbert’s research into effective sports coaching where they found coaches play a role in influencing their players Competence, Confidence, Character and Connectedness – The 4 C’s.

We have adapted these same principles and applied them in all of our courses. We believe that the 4 C’s transition smoothly across all of the learning we design and ultimately we want learners walking away with their Competence, Confidence, Character and Connection enhanced – regardless of the course they have engaged with.

This video piece goes into further detail about the 4 C’s. What they mean for us and how we harness them to help young people develop their leadership and overall social and emotional capacity.

We believe this clear lens helps both students and teachers critically analyse their performance and behaviours, and with the help of our Success Criteria Matrix, clearly define benchmarks and set leadership goals.

So, what do the Four C’s mean for Leaders of Evolution? Here’s our definitions:

The 4 C's Learning Framework | 4CS of Future Focused Learning Competence 

Relates to the skills the learner is developing whether they be technical (what) or tactical (how) and is intrinsically linked to performance outcomes.

The 4 C's Learning Framework | 4CS of Future Focused LearningConfidence 

Relates to the development of positive self-worth and recognition that the learner can use the knowledge gained to influence themselves and others.

The 4 C's Learning Framework | 4CS of Future Focused Learning    Character

     Relates to how the learner develops a sense of self-awareness and behaviours such as empathy, integrity and responsibility within the communities they apply their learning.

The 4 C's Learning Framework | 4CS of Future Focused Learning  Connectedness

  Relates to how the learner is able to establish and foster positive working relationships within the environments they apply their learning

The video overview below forms part of our Young Leaders in Sport E-learning Course, here in this Communication Lesson introduction we reflect on the types of communication and how to connect with peers. Connection is a critical element in the sporting environment and as we have seen recently in professional sports, coaches are cognisant of ensuring this forms part of their leadership approach and overall coaching framework.

For young leaders in the sporting environment we encourage them to analyse the way they develop positive relationships not just with teammates but with the wider members of the club also. Connectedness can often be the difference between success or otherwise and at the very core level it promotes a positive culture and leadership focus that every player can engage with.

The video overview below forms part of our Young Leaders in Sport E-learning Course, where our Co-founder, Damian Hecker explains this to our audience of online learners. We love to provide opportunities for our young learners to reflect on various elements of leadership and connect this to one, or more of the 4 C’s.

At the beginning of course students are provided with a 20+ question self-assessment which provides them with a score on each of their 4 C’s. With the support of their teachers, our young leaders are then encouraged to investigate a particular area of focus to start their self-regulated learning journey. By providing the scaffold and autonomy we put the onus on the learner to be responsible for their leadership learning journey.

Learning Framework

To top it off, we have pulled the 4 C’s into our Learning Framework.

Our Learning Framework identifies the tools, personnel, activities and steps required for learners to experience success.
