About US

How We Do It

The learner either comes with a specific learning goal or is encouraged to define one in the process. A goal could be to learn starting your own business, or to edit video or to write a good blog post. We then use free resources online, particularly instructional videos on Vimeo and Youtube that the learners can see at home. In class they can come and practice what they have learned. The learners can either decide to work alone with the help of our facilitator, or in a group, if they can find a common project to work on. When the project is completed, we assess the next step to take for each learner. Could be to take another class, start a business, apply for a job or apply for education elsewhere. It is a bottom-up approach based on the individual student’s skills and goals. We believe that this is the way to motivate people. Also it is the way to build up a deeper understanding of the reason why the students want to develop a particular skill.
