Relevant and applicable progressive learning

Life Skills are the key focus of the 3Di curriculum and refer to essential skills identified as supporting individual success and competency in all areas of life. This includes academic, work, home and community life. Life skills involve both personal and interpersonal skills. Life skills are not limited to any particular industry but can be ‘transferred’ across all industries and areas in life.

Students developing strong life skills are more likely to become competent, interested learners and likely to succeed in other areas of study as well as effectively integrate within society. These students are likely to develop innovative thinking within the workplace, becoming a greater asset to their employers which in turn leads to greater success and welfare.


Core Transferable Skills

These are life skills that can be transferred across industries and can be utilised in day to day activities. They are both interpersonal and personal.


These are interpersonal ‘skills’ that are integrated to create community members who showcase respect, truth, empathy and dedication.

Creativity and Technology combined

In referencing Digital Media, this curriculum means, developing creative media or creative art (generally visual but not limited to) that is built using a process that would involve a computer. This may also include digital cameras. It is important to note that a mixture of traditional mediums are also used, such as pen/pencil drawing, clay sculpture, paper cut and paste and similar art-and-craft activities.

Students go through multiple stages of digital media from pre-production and planning through to final output and finished product. They also do both individual and group work often involved in large, organised group projects. Students benefit greatly from the project based approach as well as benefiting from a group learning experience. Mind-mapping is used extensively and students develop cognitive thinking and problem solving skills.

The hands on approach means students are constantly involved and active. Projects are themed in such a way to promote a healthy, empathetic existence within the communities they reside as well as spark creative and innovative thinking and concepts for the future.

Top level and easy-to-learn software have been identified by industry professionals and implemented into the programme. The lessons have been designed so that students can spend minimal time getting bogged down with technicalities and can focus on developing their creative and analytical skills while utilizing the technology.

Providing solutions to current learning difficulties

Though not the prime focus of the 3Di programme, the “Academic Problem Areas” refer to key subject areas or topics within current national curricular that have been identified by experts from within the education system as extra difficult for students to learn.
