2. Personal Teaching Assistant for Home-based Skills Development

Pupils across all levels of education being guided through an individualised curriculum, based on their previous assessments from their teachers, by their own personal teaching assistant.

This places greater emphasis on individualised learning, recognising that every pupil/student is different, with a potential for a flipped classroom, with the parent as a facilitator, so that every child could be working on something different, be it a single subject or a cross curricular project.

The individualised curriculum makes cross curricular linked activities for pupils.

We look at a variety of Key Skills areas for pupils to progress through, as a personalised curriculum, which include:

  • Problem Solving
  • Decision Making
  • Creative Thinking
  • Lateral Thinking
  • Critical Thinking
  • Effective Communication
  • Presentation Skills
  • Influencing Others
