A child’s right to education entails the right to learn. However, for far too many children throughout the world, schooling, at all levels of education, does not lead to learning.
This learning crisis has reached a worldwide scale; a shortage of skilled teachers, inadequate education resources, and bad infrastructure make learning difficult for so many children.
Some are obvious, such as the inability to afford education or not being able to physically attend a school, while others are more subtle. For example, a shortfall of learners who feel isolated because they lack social and/or emotional characteristics for varying reasons, including Autism, ADHD, Asperger's and numerous other (diagnosed and undiagnosed) conditions on the Neurodiversity scale.
If students do manage to pass their courses, they don’t always get the career development support needed to take those next few steps into employment. This might be because qualifications are not recognized by the employee, or long academic tech qualifications that are recognized become out of date quickly for practical use or are not specific enough for employees to recruit on. There’s a lack of learned relevant skills that apply directly to job roles and qualifications don’t always lead to employment.
Without quality education and career development, students face significant challenges to employment and earning potential later in life. This impacts not just their own future but affects society as a whole.
Our mission is to inspire all individuals to turn their passions and abilities into useful qualifications, successful jobs, and satisfying lives. Everyone should be able to pick a meaningful education and career pathway that will position them for lasting success and a place in the ‘World of Work’.
We’re a team of professionals from all walks of life who believe that we can help change how children learn so that they feel like they’ve had successful learning experiences. We’re a team of parents, siblings, family members, and friends who personally understand the difficulties and the insurmountable mountains our kin must climb to gain relevant qualifications that lead to successful careers and to be happy whilst doing so.
