Becoming Future Ready

A rigorous academic education is no longer enough to prepare children for entry into the real world so. We firmly believe that we should not only let children off steam, but also play a vital role in equipping them with the necessary skills and behaviours to set them up for life after school. The WEF Report “The Future of Jobs’’ (2016) identified the top ten skills that will be required in 2020. These included complex problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity, people management, coordinating with others and emotional intelligence.’ Informed by our mission to develop active, compassionate and lifelong learners, Virtuoso Learning Solutions through its training interventions fosters a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that focus on the importance of character and personal attributes for students to mark the stepping stones on their paths to success.
