Is Bramble a school?
Bramble is not a school. It is an alternative learning space that accelerates learning by allowing children to explore their curiosity.
Why are rural areas the primary focus of Bramble?
We believe there are more opportunities for children in the urban areas compared to rural areas where children generally lack access to quality education.
How will they cope with external examinations since they don’t write examinations?
Bramble learners are tested based on how well they can apply what they’re been taught, our learners are well equipped to answer questions on what they’ve learnt and will do well in any external examination.
How will the learners measure up with their colleagues in mainstream schools?
We focus on developing our learners in areas such as emotional intelligence, cognitive and mental skills, social skills and physical education. This includes academic learning activities. Our learners are expected to perform well like their colleagues in mainstream schools.
How can your model be replicated in urban areas?
Interested educators can fill the form to join our Network of educators. Bramble helps educators to learn our curriculum and how to replicate it in their communities.
What is alternative education?
Alternative education or alternative learning is a type of learning with curricula and methods that are non-traditional. This approach focuses more on the individual and allows experientIal learning which prepares the learner for life outside school.
How does this work?
Alternative education focuses on the distinct need of each learner and these could be a character, vocational, and behavioural need.
