The objective of this program is to create a holistic learning environment that includes the needs of the community & businesses as well as the individual for a successful long-term employment.
Our approach is to use project based learning while infusing life skills and mind-set thinking. The student will be a partner in the learning process.
The scope will focus on training skills and mind-set thinking that provides success in multiple industry sectors. We aim to create a new category of a “technician of the mind”; Who thinks like an owner and evaluates situation using question to open up new avenues of learning.
