The academic stream is for students whose learning challenges are mild to moderate. With good support, they are able to pursue mainstream career paths. In most cases, learning disabilities do not affect an individual’s intelligence. We are dealing with smart individuals whose brains process information differently. This poses a challenge in information acquisition and retention. Our teachers have special training to utilize accommodation and remediation tools and techniques to overcome this hurdle. This is the reason our students "Learn Differently" as the tagline suggests.
The instructional techniques employed are centred on teaching, remediation and accommodations.
Accommodations allow students with learning challenges to benefit from interventions enabling them to achieve more. Whereas our students sit for the same examinations as their counterparts in mainstream schools, tests are done under the dispensation of the Special Consideration ambit as provided for by laws under Access Arrangement, governing educational institutions.
Each year, during examination registration period, KCCL applies for accommodations particular to each and every candidate. Examination centres are then governed by these guidelines. The Edexcel Awarding Body is increasingly cognisant of accommodations that our candidates require to successfully sit for their tests.
