About Ventures Initiative and Focus System

Ventures Initiative and Focus System is a comprehensive reform model for both primary and secondary schools. Teachers learn to help pupils gather information from many sources, understand general concepts and principles, and connect ideas across curricular areas. The aim is to create classrooms in which pupils are active and independent learners who understand and master ways to process and synthesise information. The programme also provides comprehensive professional development for teachers.

Ventures Initiative specifically targets low-performing and underachieving schools, and the programme can be customised to meet the particular needs of any school or area.
