You can easily offer Future-Oriented Education if you master ACTIVE EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

This is exactly what you are going to learn in our ACTIVE LEARNING BOOSTER ™ online teacher training program!

What is Future-Oriented Education?

If you'd asked humanity 100 years ago the same question, what would've they said?

We are not able to predict what kind of technology will be available in 10, 20 or 30 years' time, how the job market will evolve, what our cities will look like... We can only estimate and assume.

BUT we are able to foresee what kind of skills and mindsets we'll need in order to adapt to the new world.

Future-Oriented Education is about nurturing LIFE SKILLS!

Natural Born

Future Learning is not about technology, even though we use it now more than ever before. It's not about course books and worksheets either, even though educators have been using these outdated methods for decades now. 

Education cannot be about knowledge and information any more. Whatever tools you decide to use, they eventually should lead to Active Experiential Holistic Learning so that children can develop core Life Skills. 

Only core LIFE SKILLS will help our children succeed in life - no matter the circumstances!

And these Life Skills are nurtured in children's early years of life - through an authentic connection with the real world.

Seven reasons why educators need to master Active Learning now!

Active Experiential Holistic Learning is the KEY to Future-Oriented Education. Everything that children are to learn needs to happen in real life - not in course books, worksheets, or on screen.

  • The world is starting to realise that the outdated model of education, which is still in use, is no longer effective and does not bring desirable results any more. Parents and educators start to understand that passive academic-oriented learning is not enough to prepare children for the future in these uncertain times.

  • Parents are becoming more conscious and more demanding as to how learning is offered, and they no longer wish for their children to be overwhelmed with worksheets, course books, and academic-based learning. They expect educators to be able to use Active Experiential Holistic Learning much more often.

  • School Leaders look for teachers who can offer much more than lecture-based learning or pen & paper activities. They want teachers who know how to use the most effective educational approaches in their everyday practice, and who know how to make learning exciting, meaningful, and leaving long-lasting results.

  • Very few educators on a global scale can effectively implement Active Experiential Holistic Learning on a daily basis. This means that when you master it, you will join the group of highly skilled and very sought-after Educators of the Future.

  • Once you master Active Experiential Holistic Learning, you will feel very confident about planning, delivering, and evaluating truly engaging learning experiences that are fully aligned with your national curriculum and the goals of Future-Oriented Education.

  • Even though many teachers are still under the spell that technology is the future of learning, world's top educators know it's not true. They realise that it's not technology that teachers need to master. Educators of the Future need to be able to use technology as well as any other tool to offer ACTIVE EXPERIENTIAL HOLISTIC LEARNING.

  • Active Learning is not yet another trend. It's the ever-green and one of the most powerful educational approaches that will never go out of fashion. And because it's based on the Universal Laws of Natural Learning, it always accelerates children's learning - and this will never change. So, once you master Active Experiential Holistic Learning, you can be sure that your skills will stay with you forever, and that you will be able to offer high quality education regardless of times and current trends.

If there's one thing educators need to learn now - it's how to offer ACTIVE EXPERIENTIAL HOLISTIC LEARNING!

Our Story

We’ve always believed that the role of an educator is to empower every child, to celebrate them for their gifts and uniqueness, to help them discover their talents and to offer them the most enabling environments to learn to their full potential. However, we grew up in Eastern Europe where discipline, labels and outdated teaching approaches were our reality and this left it's mark on our lives and self-image. Our natural talents were considered a "burden" and we grew up believing we were doomed to fail. This is the very reason we promised ourselves to make a real change in the way early years education is offered to all children around the world. 

 When we started our teaching career we knew we were able to work completely differently to 98% of other teachers - because we could see the world through the eyes of the child. 

We had already been working along the principles of Personalised and Experiential Learning, but we constantly met people telling us that it was not possible to achieve any results without structured teaching, without rigid frameworks, discipline, testing and the same uniform goals for all children. We knew it wasn't true!

They would tell us we were dreamers.

One September night we made a bold decision that changed our lives forever.  We left our country and decided to learn from the best. Cut the story short, we owned and managed one of the most challenging business - our own multilingual early childhood education provision. 

And we did this in one of the most effective and at the same time the most demanding countries in the world - the United Kingdom - where a mistake can cost you losing your business, and where an unexpected inspection may appear at your setting at any time. 

Our skills and insights were recognised and we were invited to work with prestigious educational institutions to deliver training to other early years education providers, and to inspect their provision to make sure they met the requirements of the British National Standards - the EYFS. 

We were even featured in the Guardian as the ones who can potentially introduce major changes in education in the UK.

  • We worked as assessors and evaluators in a few governmental projects such as the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS), National Vocational Qualifications in Child Care Learning and Development (CCLD), and National Vocational Qualifications in School Playwork. 

  • We collaborated with the biggest and the most respected Higher Education institutions in the country such as the Tribal Group, Kingston University, the JGA Group, and Canterbury Christ Church University. 

  • During the past 10 years we have inspected and assessed over 100 Early Childhood provisions - many of them represented the highest standards in education, whereas many were still far from it. 

  • We have travelled across and lived in 30 different countries where we've made friends with locals, lived their lifestyle, participated in their local customs, events and gatherings. We've visited local playgrounds, museums, children-dedicated places, nurseries and schools. We've talked to teachers, parents, children, and visionaries.  We've experienced, tested, observed, compared, contrasted, evaluated, and enjoyed local infrastructure, parks, public spaces for families and children. We've seen the best and not so great. After all these years of living in the world education holds no secrets for us. 

  • We've been world schooling our son for 14 years non-stop. He's never been to school but he's been learning from the world all his life with great success. We have a deep understanding of Formal Education, Home Schooling, and Personalised Learning. We've experienced how children can flourish on both paths and what it takes to "get it right" for them.  

  • Our professional insights combined with life experience give us a unique Global Perspective. We know what all children have in common, no matter the location. We also understand the local perspective of educators and what they need in order to be able to offer the same highest quality of Early Childhood Education and Care. 

The Secret Ingredient

After all these years we can confidently say that we know the secret of the world class Early Years provision - the one that can successfully nurture children’s natural leadership mindset and offer full potential learning.

The most successful settings are doing certain things the same way. They follow exactly the same procedures, they have the same systems in place, they share the same values.

Natural Born

We’ve put our experience and knowledge together, we've boiled it down, and we’ve created a series of powerful teacher training programs that incorporate all key ingredients that guarantee the learning processes are highly personalised for every child, and that each child is celebrated for their uniqueness and that teachers work according to the most effective approaches that ever existed. This in turn serves as a very strong foundation for nurturing children’s natural Leadership Mindset. 

When you join ACTIVE LEARNING BOOSTER  we will show you how to implement the most advanced and the most effective educational approaches that ever existed in the history of Education!
