Your child can forge their own learning path with your guidance.

At this point in your child's learning journey, they can set personal goals, create their own plans and know when and how to act independently. They have good communication skills, listen actively and interact effectively with others. They have a strong voice and are able to negotiate and share ideas respectfully.

This is an ideal opportunity to give your child voice and choice in their learning and enable them to have a high level of ownership. 

Here, your child will be able to focus on personal interests, forge their own learning path, create their own plans whilst maintaining contact with their learning coach or parent.

This is one of the most flexible approaches to learning whilst maintaining the ability to keep track of progress for both you and your child.

We do not recommend you start here until a good grasp of our platform for learning has been reached.
