Homeschooling is a home-based education system, that includes the potential participation of the parent or trainer as a teacher to the child.
The parent is at the center of the educative process. The child acquires the necessary skills to develop their full potential to become a self-propelling, fulfilled, and contributing member of the community.
Self Homeschooling offers a plethora of benefits in various aspects, not just for the child but for the entire family.
Academic - More time and focus can be given to subjects or topics where your child needs more assistance with. Your child may learn at their own pace in line with their learning style and has the opportunity to express themselves fully in their own way.
Parent and Child Relationship - With the amount of quality time you’ll be spending with your child, you will have the greatest influence over them. Your authority is established, recognised, and appreciated.
Family and Community - All family members get to be involved in schooling—less time on the road stuck in traffic equals more time at home, more time to see the world together, and more time to serve as a family.
Financial - Save on school fees and use the savings to spend instead on selected programs to boost your child’s learning. No more extra fees need to be paid for the school bus, school equipment and uniform.
Homeschooling is offered on our LMS for all years from Primary Year 1 to High school Year 11.
An LMS is a Learning Management System and is a software platform which is designed specifically to create, distribute and manage the delivery of educational content. This combines a wide range of features to simulate a class setting without having the students being physically present in a classroom.
Our Self Homeschooling platform is an LMS used to share our courses, learning objectives, instructions, reading material, videos, worksheets and an assessment for that specific topic with students.
Our LMS includes Kinaesthetic, Visual, Auditory and interactive elements to support the student learning process.
The students have access to reading material, worksheets, videos and quizzes. This ensures the students are engaged in a variety of different ways.
Our courses are organised over a ten month period starting from September until June.
Each monthly course contains a set of topics for that period and every month has a different set of topics.
A yearly course is basically all the months combined into one at a discounted rate.
For example if someone purchases a different course every month it will cost more than purchasing a yearly course.
This is something that only you can decide and are totally comfortable with. Some people prefer purchasing courses on a monthly basis as it gives them more flexibility. Whilst others prefer to take advantage of the discounted rate added to the yearly course.
Our Self Homeschooling platform follows the British Curriculum of England and Wales.
Your child will receive a qualification from the examining board after they have taken their exams in Year 10 or 11. We do not provide any internal qualifications as we only provide resources to support the learning process via the LMS.
Once your child is in Year 10 or 11 that is when they will be taking exams. At this stage they will need to apply to an exam centre to take their exams for IGCSE. We can assist your child with applying for their exam if needed. There are no exams for primary and lower Secondary year groups.
We do not issue transcripts, but instead we provide a record of student’s assessments. You will have access to their results on the learning management system.
No, there are no registration fees.
