At Future Learning we are renowned for providing an excellent educational experience for our students. Our Online Summer Programme has been specifically designed for our partners and students during the Covid-19 Pandemic. We are delighted to be continuing our high standard of lesson delivery online which develops English Language and the 21st Century Skills that are essential for modern life, work and study.

Course Description

Future Learning’s Young Learner Programmes focus on those vital skills which there isn’t time for during the school year. On our Online Summer Programme we offer students a different project each week, designed to develop the skills and qualities which they will rely on in the world of higher study and work. In addition to communication skills these projects require problem solving and team work as well as challenging students to think critically and independently. These are also international projects which invite the students to explore each other’s culture and develop an understanding of each other’s countries and their people.
