Learning centre tailoring programs to individuals

A MARYBOROUGH school teacher is putting a new spin on learning.

Suzanne Bushell will be tailoring classes to suit individual's students and their own interests at her Oakhurst learning facility.

She said many people weren't happy with traditional schooling and the system doesn't work for everyone.

"It's for people who want to learn but found they haven't been able to," Suzanne said.

She's now taking enrolments for her learning centre, which will be capped at 20 students and open to teenagers and adults.

Suzanne said the program was run from a working farm and ideal for students with low-confidence or someone who had gone through life so far thinking they can't learn.

"We look at what sort of learner someone is," she said

"We're looking at the individual and saying how can we tailor this learning to you.

"It's also about not being afraid to stop and go back to the basics."

The school will run Monday to Friday and there will be a focus on team work and life skills.

"Things like working together creating lunches ... people have got to take on responsibilities," Suzanne said.

She said her program was similar to the Steiner education, a method which encourages individualism and initiative.
