This is where the concept of ‘transferability’ is helpful. Transferability has been described as ‘the Holy Grail of teaching and learning’ because of its importance to the learning process. Simply, it means: to be able to recall information or perform a skill at a later date and in a variety of different contexts. If a student can not recall a fact then they have not learnt it - we all know this. But if a student can not use a fact in a variety of contexts then they have not truly learnt it either, because they can not transfer this knowledge. The same is true for learning new skills.
And this where ‘transferability’ gets really interesting. The best way to ensure transferability, and thereby learning, is to ensure the students have truly enriching educational experiences that enable them to acquire new skills and knowledge, and then apply it to different contexts. This is why we provide such a broad, enriching and stimulating curriculum - it is not only more engaging and fun, it is also the best way to truly learn.
