Put simply, academic skills are skills students use to study effectively, whatever their subject area.
Learning these transferable skills give learners more confidence, independence and control over their studies; it keeps them organised and allows them to meet new challenges as they progress through education.
With stress being the number one enemy of effective study, it becomes critical to empower students to take control and have confidence in their abilities.
Our young learner programmes – specifically focused on academic enrichment – are expertly-designed to strengthen these skills, while also working with your child to develop their English language skills and fluency.
