Conventional schooling is based on Pedagogy where the learner is dependent on the teacher, who determines what, where and how the learner should learn.
It is an assembly line where the sole purpose of learning is to pass examinations and move to the next grade. It is no wonder that learners feel disengaged.
They need to have agency over what they learn, when they learn, and how they learn. Conventional school only leads to a lot of wasted potential and unchanneled talent.
Beyond 8 offers learners autonomy and self- directedness both inside and outside the classroom and enables students to face the complexities of our ever-changing world.
Our program is based on Heutagogy, which is self-determined learning, that emphasizes the development of autonomy, capacity, and capability. The teacher plays the role of a coach and brings together the environment that enables lifelong learning.
Beyond 8 learners will thrive in a high skills, high knowledge economy and lead meaningful lives.
