One recently satisfied client says?

"I know that the team have already given their feedback, but I thought I would write you a note rather than leave a message. I think that the course achieved the brief really well and was relevant to the team. The team were clearly energised when I arrived showing their enthusiasm for the theory and techniques incorporated into the AL session. Kat was a great role-model for the course demonstrating the skills she was advocating. As an excellent course leader, she made it look really easy and completely natural. Kat showed tremendous empathy with the group and tailored the sessions well to keep us all engaged. The group came out with a lot of ideas and solutions to use for the future and I have committed to follow up during our 1:1 sessions and at team meetings to continue the enthusiasm and momentum. Thank you both for coming up with a training solution that was so relevant and inspirational."

Accelerated Learning

Accelerated learning (A.L.) is the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It's a total system for speeding and enhancing both the design process and the learning processes. Based on the latest brain research, it has proven again and again to increase learning effectiveness while saving time and money in the process.

Many of today's leading organisations and educational institutions are benefiting from the power of accelerated learning. What makes accelerated learning so effective is that it's based on the way we all naturally learn.

A.L. unlocks much of our potential for learning that has been left largely untapped by most conventional learning methods. It does this by actively involving the whole person, using physical activity, creativity, music, images, colour, and other methods designed to get people deeply involved in their own learning.

According to accelerated learning, here's what people need for an optimal learning environment: A Positive Learning Environment.

Nuerons - Accelerated Learning

People learn best in a positive physical, emotional, and social environment, one that is both relaxed and stimulating. A sense of wholeness, safety, interest, and enjoyment is essential for optimising human learning.

Total Learner Involvement

People learn best when they are totally and actively involved and take full responsibility for their own learning. Learning is not a spectator sport but a participatory one. Knowledge is not something a learner passively absorbs, but something a learner actively creates. Thus A.L. tends to be more activity-based rather than materials-based or presentations-based.

Collaboration Among Learners.

People generally learn best in an environment of collaboration. All good learning tends to be social. Whereas traditional learning emphasises competition between isolated individuals, A.L. emphasises collaboration between learners in a learning community.

Variety That Appeals To All Learning Styles.

People learn best when they have a rich variety of learning options that allows them to use all their senses and exercise their preferred learning style. Rather than thinking of a learning program as a one-dish meal, A.L. thinks of it as a results-driven, learner-centered smorgasbord.

Contextual Learning.

People learn best in context. Facts and skills learned in isolation are hard to absorb and quick to evaporate. The best learning comes from doing the work itself in a continual process of "real-world" immersion, feedback, reflection, evaluation, and re-immersion.

Accelerated learning has really one aim, though: to get results. Accelerated learning is paying off handsomely for many organisations.
