Sixth Form Taylor- ed just for you
TRADITIONALLY, schools are considered to be a place where children learn subject knowledge and content to ultimately prepare for public examinations such as SPM, IGCSE, STPM or A- Levels.
Education in a good school is so much more than that as it includes enhancing social and life skills as well as academic study.
In their early years, children learn to share and play together but were also taught literacy and numeric skills.
As they grow older, children learn to think critically and become more independent while being able to collaborate with others.
The foundations of good schools are built on these parts of the child’s learning journey.
Around the age of 16, students reach the end of their compulsory schooling and what comes next is important because profound decisions are made for their future in regards to higher education, namely university studies.
In last year November, Forbes magazine published an article on 10 skills that new graduates should have.
It brings to light the important fact that academic qualifications do not count for everything; instead, it places a higher priority in soft skills such as teamwork, decision- making and problemsolving. The reality is that the best universities worldwide are searching for students who not only excel academically but are also equipped with such skills and experiences.
