Skills Development Courses

Available: IN-CLASS ONLY

A strong foundation of essential skills provides the basis for academic success.

We know that students invest significant time and effort in their studies, but all too often many struggle to obtain the results that reflect their commitment and potential. We believe that given the right teaching, guidance and support, EVERY student has the ability to excel in their studies.

Academic Task Force Skills Development Program has been specifically designed to equip students with the necessary skills for ongoing academic success. It includes a number of targeted courses that students can choose from, depending on which subject they need to improve in.
