WHY A BRITISH CURRICULUM?
Students Come First
The British Learning Centre offers tuition from the British National Curriculum.
British education has achieved a worldwide reputation for quality, and is recognised and respected around the world. One of the huge benefits is how transferable it is – students can move seamlessly from country to country or back to the UK. All children who join British Learning Centre are expected to be committed to all lessons to ensure the best progress.
The British National Curriculum is a very structured curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of all students, stretching brighter children and supporting those who need it through differentiated teaching and learning activities. The curriculum extends and excites all students, whatever their interests or ability. Through it, we are able to identify, celebrate and nurture the talents and intelligences of students.
British education is renowned for concerning itself with the development of the whole personality. Learning is important, but not enough in itself. Young people need to develop their potential to explore and discover the world around them, to think for themselves and form opinions, to relate to others, to develop their bodies through sport and physical education, and to gain experience in taking responsibility.
In the British education system, students are taught to learn by questioning, problem-solving and creative thinking rather than by the mere retention of facts, hence giving them analytical and creative thinking skills that they will need in the working world. A variety of teaching and assessment methods designed to develop independent thought as well as a mastery of the subject matter is used.
The National Curriculum of Britain has a clearly defined series of academic and other objectives at every level.
Progress is examined via individual teacher assessment against the National Curriculum Attainment Targets for all subjects.
Learning For Tomorrow
We are all aware that we live in a rapidly changing world and that we are preparing our students for life in a society where they may be working in jobs that do not currently exist, employing technologies that have not yet been invented. Through the British curriculum at British Learning Centre we place significant emphasis on the development of personal learning and thinking skills that will result in young people who are flexible and able to adapt to changing circumstances without fear of inhibition, enabling and empowering them to meet the demands of 21st century life.
We understand that students of tomorrow are going to need very different personal qualities and skills than their former generation. For this reason, children at the British Learning Centre learn in such a way that they develop the personal qualities of respect, striving for excellence, accepting accountability, facing challenges and ensuring we maintain a happy environment.
