Our Learn2Learn program bridges the student support gap by empowering students and developing pro-active learning behaviours – in short, it addresses the non-academic “personal” element that impacts on student retention and success.

Staggered content

Designed to start a minimum of 2 weeks prior to Term, content is released in stages to encourage spaced reflection and practice.

Timing of module release can be adjusted to suit your first year schedule.

action oriented

Practice & Reflect

Each topic encourages reflection on their own personal practice, as well as reflecting on the learning strategies used within the Learn2Learn program.

shared journey

We offer an additional small group coaching or a peer-support framework and training should you decide to incorporate a peer-support component to your roll-out of the program.
