We recognise that some learners prefer a concentrated 1:1 experience to support them through a project towards a target. Some might just want tech support as they explore things for themselves. Some focus better individually as one might learn a musical instrument and take their learning away to develop it on their own.
With over 20 years experience in education including state education management we are experienced at:
helping learners identify targets and goals, breaking goals down into manageable chunks
supporting students in doing their own work rather than doing it for them
providing specialist facilities and training unavailable elsewhere locally
supporting through formal qualifications such as GCSEs or through personal goals like enterprise.
Working with a variety of Special Educational Needs and abilities
We do this by
mentoring and supporting rather than directing
directing where requested
identifying achievable but challenging goals that build confidence
create progressive step by step way points to develop a sense of progress
develop generic strategies and skills such as the 'design process', communication and planning skills
developing self assessment rather than our being 'judge and jury'
developing resourcefulness not dependency
What you get:
learning support tailored to your learning style and goals within the specialisms that we offer. (We'll tell you if we lack expertise)
to develop generic skills and strategies to tackle projects more independently.
distance learning tutor support if you prefer to work that way. We use generic web meeting freeware (all meetings need to be recorded for training, CP and monitoring purposes)
limited postal service between tutorials of parts we laser cut for you - at cost.
Specific projects you might like to do
Build or make something like a construction kit. We can supply a range of these but it might be a gift from a relo or something too ambitious to start at home. It might be a construction project, or help exploring a subject like electronics or control.
Perhaps you need to make items with CAD CAM - jewellery, bits n bobs. You would learn the skills, use our software and email drawings for us to cut for a cutting fee which you pick up at your next tutorial.
challenging, develop an enterprise or a skill.
