Located at no.9 Bright Street, the Learner Advancement centre houses our library and 4 classrooms, one of which is equipped with 22 computers donated by Panerai, Officine Panerai is an Italian luxury watch manufacturer. The focus of this department is to provide programmes that are complementary to the school curriculum and add value to each child’s developmental journey. Programmes are targeted at both primary and high school learners and offer them a range of opportunities: Computer-enhanced Math lessons, LEGO play, coding, life skills, and leadership development. More recently, Learner Advancement has launched two projects aimed at preparing young matriculants for the world of work, particularly related to the hospitality industry. The overarching aim of this department is to ensure that all Imibala learners leave school ready and prepared for their next steps. This is achieved through a learner-centred educational approach that focuses on empowering learners to take charge of their personal development.
Learner Advancement is an exciting and very dynamic space in the Imibala suite of projects. Through the generosity of donors, several pilot projects allow Imibala the privilege of testing opportunities and developing material for longer-term programmes.
