Oppidan Education: the new partnership with Forte Village
It’s not easy to choose a holiday destination for a family with children, however, the Forte Village Resort in Sardinia makes the difference. Here the kids can have fun in the magical world of Wonderland, do sports in the Kids Academies or be a part of the Oppidan Education programs.
Following the partnership between Mattel and Rosanna Marziale, the Michelin starred chef responsible for the Ristorante dei Bambini within the resort, Forte Village has announced a new partnership with Oppidan Education with a menu to guarantee the health of the youngest ones.
Oppidan Education is a mentoring service based in the United Kingdom, it focuses on children and teenagers between 7 and 18 years of age. Different from other mentoring programs, Oppidan helps children to cultivate their talents with four principal objectives:
- Improve self-confidence and effort of the child during the learning phase,
- Feed the interest both in and out of the classroom
- Help the child become autonomous during the learning process and execution of homework
- Learn to handle and resolve concerns/problems
At Forte Village there will be group lessons for children between 7 and 13 years of age, both in the mornings and in the afternoons, focusing on each participant’s learning process. There are also private lessons available to book.
Workshops taught by Oppidan staff for the young guests of the Forte Village resort:
- A Minute To Win It
- The Keys To Success
- Memory Madness
- The Oppidan Quiz
- Dragon’s Den Business Pitching
- Creative Writing & Debate
- Maths Mayhem
- Poetry Slam
Oppidan Education: who is the tutor and what are soft skills
When children are emotionally involved during the learning process there are no limits to their potential. Oppidan Education is based on the idea of putting the tutor at the center of the correct development of children and teenagers.
The tutor helps the children to cultivate their self-esteem, self-confidence, and capacities in a way that goes beyond only academic support. Walter and Henry’s objective, founders of Oppidan, is to develop “soft skills”, meaning the abilities necessary for the young to face their future.
Soft skills can be distinguished into two groups:
- Internal transversal abilities: how we perceive ourselves
- External transversal abilities: how we deal with relations with others
AlmaLaurea, the Consorzio Interuniversitario ed Ente di Ricerca at the service of graduates of universities and companies, has identified the 14 most important soft skills:
- Trust in ourselves
- Resistance to stress
- Capacity to plan and organize
- Precision/Attention to detail
- Learning in a continued manor
- Pursuing objectives
- Dealing with information
- To be enterprising/To have the spirit of initiative
- Communication capability
- Problem solving
- Team work
Oppidan Education: activities for children at Forte Village
In between lessons with the Oppidam Education team, children can enjoy 47 hectares of a luxurious park, an uncontaminated white sand beach, and all the activities in the Kids Academies at Forte Village.
Physical activity is important for the psychophysical health of children, sports value working as a group and the importance of self-confidence, to challenge limits and work hard to reach an objective. Sport also helps children to socialize and is a synonym of fun and new friends.
While parents can relax and enjoy beneficial SPA treatments like Thalassotherapy or massages with Ayurvedic oils, the children can do sports with the soccer players at the Chelsea Football Academy, play hockey or the antique and legendary art of fencing by going to lessons at the Hockey Academy by Legend or the Fencing Academy.

To play under the attentive eyes of these great professionals is a unique and fun experience, allowing children and teenagers to improve their skills, challenge themselves and make new friends.
