Our award-winning Learning Philosophy is at the heart of our approach to teaching.
We understand how people learn best, and how to work with every individual to remove traditional barriers to learning. Our expertise in the field of neuroscience means that we understand the limitless capacity of the brain. We also recognise that emotional intelligence and a sense of purpose are essential for learners to fulfil their potential.
Our award-winning Learning Philosophy helps us all understand how best our students learn and how we teach our learners effectively.
We utilise the important relationship between the following elements:
Our brains are capable of incredible things. From the study of neuroscience, we understand that the brain connects neurons to make networks. These networks strengthen and work faster through repeated use. We believe in hard work and recognise the value in working through our failures so that we are constantly learning and improving.
We need to motivate ourselves in order to do the practice that strengthens the networks in our brains. By repeatedly demonstrating the relevance and impact of newly learnt skills and knowledge, we maintain our students’ motivation.
Our emotional response to studying has a massive influence on how we learn. The more positive our learners' emotional response to studying is, the more likely they are to engage with and remember what they're learning.
