Additional Learning / Academic Support Workshops
Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE)
This is a classroom curriculum designed to enhance the cognitive functions necessary for academic learning and achievement. This was pioneered by Professor Reuven Feuerstein (since the 1950s). The program seeks to correct deficiencies in fundamental thinking skills, provide students with the concepts, skills, strategies, operations, and techniques necessary to function as independent learners, and to help students learn how to learn.
MOT (Courage to Care life skills programme)
The MOT training programmes give young people the strength to manage peer pressure, to believe in themselves and to take responsibility for their own lives and future. MOT focuses strongly on the development of self-confidence, sound values, positive attitude and behaviour, self-leadership and to resect and care for others.
