Avenor prepares children for those jobs that are not invented yet
Avenor College aims to develop the entrepreneurial thinking and those abilities which will provide the students with the needed resources to b leaders in the professions they will choose, even for jobs that are not invented yet. Besides the academic area, courses like Enterprise, Global Perspective or Community Service help them to deepen a series of necessary abilities, such as the initiative, involvement behavior, decision-making abilities, assuming errors, creating and maintaining personal and professional relationships.
The modules are accredited by Cambridge International Examinations – one of the most important international institutions in educational field; the team of teachers of the Avenor College is formed by British and Romanian teachers having a didactic experience abroad or who have taught in other international schools in Romania. In fact, most of the students teaching at Avenor already intend to continue their studies abroad, and the famous universities where they intend to subscribe, include Oxford and Cambridge.
“An essential part of the Cambridge international system is related to the learning process. Therefore, we assess the manner in which the learning process develops, and the result is one who only can to enjoy us: students got used to assume their responsibility for how they choose to learn. The most appreciated thing at Avenor is that they are not forced to memorize information, but instead they receive the needed tools to analyze and assess what they find out in the right way”, stated Denise Trickett, the Avenor College Manager.
