The SILC curriculum & methodology
The SILC curriculum is a pedagogically aligned syllabus developed over many years by our experienced team of educators in partnership with top private schools from around the world. Our programme integrates learning outcomes with fun group activities and outdoor challenges by positioning activities alongside feedback and evaluation provided by our dedicated trainers, all of whom have extensive backgrounds in the education industry.
Our trainers connect with each student individually, providing personal insight and helping students to develop self-reflection and resilience. Throughout the experience, our students are encouraged to identify personal goals and make a commitment to accomplish these during their academic, sporting and daily lives, resulting in a Personal Action Plan – a tool which has proved to have a significant and positive impact on child development.
