In schools along the coast class sizes can be 25-30 students, does this constitute private education ?
Our education center started with 5 students three years ago and has grown steadily to 28 students. Our class sizes range from one to one lessons to a maximum of 10.
We focus on a more holistic approach to teaching, the welfare of the student is important and we provide mentors to help students cope with the pressure of academic and social life. Having lectured in university, students were often ill equipped for university as they lacked basic research and self motivating skills that are essential to succeed in university. We try to ensure students develop the skills.
We all have a responsibility to educate the next generation of informed citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said, and instilling in them a love of knowledge and culture for their own sake. But education is also about the practical business of ensuring that young people receive the preparation they need to secure a university place or a good job and a fulfilling career, and have the resilience and moral character to overcome challenges and succeed.
AS/A level study is intended to encourage students to think for themselves and express their opinions. In order to achieve this they need to carry out independent research on their subjects to expand their knowledge beyond the course book. Having lectured in university for many years, I am aware these are skills essential for university and working life.
Our school endeavours to provide this environment. In order to achieve this, there needs to be a good working relationship between the teachers, students and parents.
Our IT, Business Studies, Sociology, History and English teachers have experience lecturing in universities.
