Workshops for developing independent learners

As students make progress ascending the educational ladder, they are exposed to ever-greater needs for learner autonomy and self-motivation. Studies suggest that independent learning flourishes where it is encouraged to flourish. Students equipped with strategies for learning independently are more likely to succeed at school, college and university. That is where MADE comes in. We develop independent and motivated learners through interactive and engaging skills-based workshops. We empower students to go further in education and in life, by giving them a toolbox of thinking strategies that build confidence, increase competence and improve results.
