Learning Philosophy

Our learning philosophy is at the heart of our approach to teaching and learning.

We understand how people learn, 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 learning philosophy is all about the dynamics between the brain, motivation and our emotions. It recognises that:

Everyone has the capacity to learn effectively. Understanding the brain and its capacity to expand and learn allows us to explore new opportunities.

Motivation is essential to success. We give students a clear purpose for their learning, autonomy and involvement through the co-creation of their learning programme. We provide them with opportunities to practice, so they become highly motivated.

The biggest block to learning is our own emotions and feelings of inadequacy. We create learning environments where students feel emotionally safe and secure, able to experiment and learn, and able to manage their feelings. We encourage our learners to believe in themselves. This all helps learners gain confidence and self-worth and become independent, emotionally secure, mature individuals. We achieve this through coaching, individual sessions and group work.
