The EdisonLearning Philosophy
Our 21st century citizens will be presented with challenges and career opportunities that are as yet unenvisaged, using knowledge and technologies which are still to be developed.
Mastery of literacy and numeracy and subject knowledge will be insufficient. All the available evidence shows that while exam success can open opportunities it is the personal, social, learning and employability skills that underpin a successful and fulfilling adulthood.
Schools have risen to the challenge of constantly rising expectations of attainment. But the current system – how schools are organised and operated, the accountability systems, the curriculum and the use of technologies are not fit for purpose. New ways of organising and focusing energy in schools are urgently needed to meet these new demands – and this is where EdisonLearning come in!
Academic attainment is very important but our education philosophy tells us that, an education exclusively focused on achieving GCSEs and A levels represents an inadequate preparation for adulthood, and fails to meet the needs of the Country’s businesses and economy. A great education combines academic excellence with the development of essential personal and social skills, and provides every child with a range of experiences to develop the passions and interests that in turn will support a fulfilled and prosperous adulthood.
We have been fortunate to work with a range of schools that share our mission to turn this philosophy into a transformation of day to day practice, not just for one or two schools, but for every school preparing their students for an uncertain and increasingly global future.
