Bramble Learning Space is an open learning community that provides quality and lifelong education in a fun and engaging way. It is the first alternative learning space in Nigeria. The first model was founded in Arikanki, Ibadan, Oyo state.

Using Project-based Learning, we engage creativity and critical thinking in every child. We believe every child is capable of changing the world. We are currently exploring themes in Mathematics, Language Art, Science, Technology and Creative Arts. To get more familiar with the world around us, we created an inner House of Thoughts where opinions or theories about the events around the world are discussed.

Bramble learning space focuses on mental, social, physical and emotional development of every child. We engage in various activities ranging from art and craft, to music, literary works, woodworks and carpentry. Everything we do at Bramble learning space is placed on equal emphasis.

Our work is possible with the effort of our Catalysts. These are creative educators who are trained and equally passionate about transforming the entire learning process from conventional to more effective alternatives.

We hold this belief, in the hope that a new structure in our education system will emerge; a structure where learning is not static. If this system interests you and you will like to learn more, kindly send us an email at hello@bramblenetwork.org

Bramble Learning Model

Content

The Bramble learning model combines localised knowledge and global perspectives to conceptualize whatever is being learnt. Based on learners' interests, they explore varying subjects such as mathematics, languages, art, humanities, science and technology, entrepreneurship, values and community development.

Methodology

We promote lifelong education in a fun and engaging way. Using Project Based Learning and other best-fit pedagogy, we engage creativity and critical thinking in every learner. We give every learner a platform to develop their capabilities. We focus on the mental, social, physical and emotional development of every learner.

Assessment

Assessment is very practical and personalized. Every learner measures what has been learnt with their set milestone. Comparison and unhealthy competition is discouraged.

Our story

Our story

The first model was founded in Arikanki, Ibadan, Oyo state. Bramble Learning Space is the first alternative school in Nigeria which offers holistic learning to children and youth from rural and marginalized communities. The open learning community offers children and youth within the local villages an opportunity to develop their dream. Through facilities such as a design studio, makerspace, sports centre, farm, and library; each child is encouraged to champion his/her own journey. It is an open campus with different shapes of bamboo sheds for discussion. Every bramble learner is exceptional; they exhibit good communication and social skills, problem-solving attitude, collaboration and creativity.
