In the process of Talent Based Learning, there will be need for additional skills and knowledge that may be obtained from traditional academic learning units or life experiences. However, these may not require the learner to pick up an entire course but only sections of a course that is relevant to the “Prescribed Talent Focus” .
Thus a learner may pick up some course units or modules from traditional learning systems BUT with the freedom to exit such programmes intermittently and without the feeling of ‘an examination is on the way’ or with the intention of examining the learner on the course unit or module.
The organization of the learning will thus be flexible to allow the institution hosting these units or modules flexibility just like clinics would do when dealing with patients before final referral to a main hospital for final treatment.
This makes the setup of Academic Clinics to be significantly different from schools, colleges or university setups where students learn based on a known syllabus for a registered course, till the end it.
The Academic Content Providers are thus the Academic Clinics.
Academic Clinics focus on one or more key components of the curriculum and hone in on improving or enhancing these skills. Our academic clinics are offered in small group settings to reduce anxiety for some students who feel pressure under one-to-one learning. It allows for peer mentoring and confidence building. Such clinics are also cost efficient for parents.
TBL offers monthly clinics covering various core skill areas, necessary to enrich the talent focus. Our Academic Clinics are an excellent and effective way for students to improve their skills and gain confidence.
