Learning to Learn
Throughout their time at Mount Carmel, we encourage our students to take responsibility for their learning.
21st century employers value independent learners who have progressed successfully from Secondary Education, through further education at College, and then on to Higher Education at university. Independent learners take their skills forward into the world of work and lifelong learning.
Working in the LRC outside lesson time helps our students develop independence. It gives them experience of planning and managing their own work, researching and recording away from the classroom. Coming into college early or staying behind at the end of the day provides opportunities to complete homework in a quiet, safe working environment. Students can take advantage of qualified staff and access the full range of learning technologies and resources needed for their work.
We provide holiday revision classes and workshops as well as opening all day every day during term time.
