Since the entry of the assembly line, we have segregated our ‘head and hands’ so to say, both in education and in the field of work. On the other hand, we now witness a growing interest forproducing local products and circular and sustainable design and an increasing demand for skilledworkers who can think and act. This shift demands a new young professional
By using both our HEAD and our HANDS, we reach our HEART. The student who is inventive, knows about material, is skilled, is focused and has a team spirit, has the future. We aim to create are commitment to the vocational arts, in education and in life. Students learn to follow the path of their tendency and talent, rather than relegating everyone to a college prep tract. By challenging students to take their time, perform trial & error activities, we appeal to them to be clever and crafty. This also includes prolonging their attention span and be able to work in a focused manner on long term assignments, viewing an assignment from all angles.
Our ambition is to educate skills in a cross subject manner to create context for students. Thecombination of alpha, beta and gamma subjects in one task challenges students to be more exploring, creative, ingenious and inventive. Important aspect here is to create the circumstances for students to “learn to learn” this way.
