Over 600 Schools are making use of our Study Skills Programme.

One of the biggest challenges that learners face from Gr4 – Gr10 is that is that they do not know how to plan. This practical workshop teaches learners to create a weekly planner, monthly study time table that correlates to their exam time table and a task priority system for projects and home work.

The system enables parents and educators to monitor progress and ensure that that all subject content has been thoroughly worked through and that sufficient  revision has taken place.

 We invite parents to join their children at the workshop at no additional cost.

 The below workshops are facilitated at your school and include the following basic categories, aimed at each developmental age:
