THE HANDS ON LEARNING PROGRAM
Hands On Learning (HoL) is an innovative education program that caters to the different ways young people learn.
Two artisan-teachers work collaboratively with small groups of cross-age students on authentic building projects that provide a platform for students to engage, grow confidence and achieve success at school.
HoL fosters strong, long term relationships that help young people develop the skills and abilities they need to succeed in work and life like collaboration, problem solving, communication, resilience and empathy.
HOW IT WORKS
one day, every week
Ten students, two artisan-teachers, one day out of the classroom every week
Girls and boys from different year levels are referred by wellbeing staff, year level co-ordinators and school leadership teams.
HoL artisan-teachers are employed directly by schools while the Save the Children Australia HoL team provides support through quality assurance and ongoing training and development.
