The Learning Philosophy
Our Learning Philosophy provides a common set of values and language for learning across our schools, colleges and workplaces.
It helps us collaborate and achieve success for our learners, our people and the employers and communities we serve. We believe anyone is capable of great things if they can learn to believe in themselves.
It shows how hard work, persistence, the right incentives and a supportive and safe environment, can change the way we learn and develop highly employable talent for our local communities and the employer partners we work with.
It’s built around three pillars: our brains, our emotions, and being motivated.
Employers recognise that their workforce will need to continually up-skill themselves. The good news is that we all have the capacity to develop ourselves throughout our lifetime. Like any other part of your body, the more you work your brain and train it, the stronger it becomes.
You can master great things when given the right guidance, put in lots of practice and work hard. Every time you practise something it strengthens your brain, so that the next time, it’s not as hard. And as you improve, you can start to take on new things and understand more, so you can continue and thrive on the path you take through life.
