Open Mind

Open Mind opens doors

Open Mind provides adult learners with the skills to explore contemporary topics, develop real language skills and prepare for their study, work and future career.

Designed to help students become natural, effective communicators, Open Mind prepares learners for life both in and out of the work environment. The comprehensive life skills syllabus will help students develop an understanding of ‘work and career’, ‘study and learning’, and ‘self and society’. Students will also acquire essential strategies to help them become more efficient learners.
