State of the Art Online Teaching for Schools

 

The Grow Programme links all the skills and knowledge learned at school to an online teacher supervised, micro business run by students online. It has been mapped to the assessment criteria for Formal Qualifications, Work Education and is endorsed by the NSW Department of Education and approved for mandatory work experience. Our state of the art, project based teaching system includes all your teaching resources, course mapping, scope and sequence and more, all in one centralised location. We connect Grow Programme teachers online to exchange and share ideas and experiences to create an online teacher community for support and collaboration for the online delivery of school courses.

Our focus is on the practices and processes of a modern, online business, how individual skills come together and how every role is important in a real business. Simply, a single online programme using an online teaching shop and real products. A teaching system which suits students at all levels of competency, from very basic workplace skills right through to coding, online stock control, business management and so much more.

THE GROW PROGRAMME IS ENDORSED BY

What we Understand

 

The impact of Covid19 on education highlights the importance of on line teaching and learning. Our Grow Programme students have continued their courses without interruption, completing their work online and developing their online business skills.

Teachers  need to keep pace with a dynamic new online economy and job market to provide students with the best pathway to employment.

Experiential and project-based learning works. It develops creative and divergent thinkers with entrepreneurial mindsets.

Teachers need easy to deliver streamlined programmes that are approved by the Department of Education, are mapped to qualifications and courses connecting online resources. Less time spent on administration and more time on delivery and creating great student outcomes.

The Grow Programme prides itself on the number of students that it has reengaged in education who were heading toward dropping out of school all together. Some are now planning a pathway to university.

The process of securing employment has changed. Different industries take different approaches to recruitment and skill requirements are changing. We create a bridge between school and employment.

Being an entrepreneur involves a complex process. The easy road to riches is simply a myth unless you have considerable cultural capital and close mentors. The Grow Programme is about understanding all aspects of business and how individual skills fit commercially together. In other words, our students are given the opportunity to understand the practices, processes, language, numeracy, communication skills, codes of conduct and professional expectations involved in specific areas of everyday business. They identify how skills fit into job roles or further education and become self-reflective to create a pathway to life outside of school.
