Pathways To Purpose

Our 6-week programme explores the Japanese model of ‘Ikigai’ which helps you identify ‘What You Love’, ‘What The World Needs’, ‘What You Get Paid For’, and ‘What You Are Good At’.

You will also investigate Emotional Intelligence, Critical Thinking, Growth Mindset and clarify your Values.
The final phase will give you the opportunity of designing a future roadmap with a concrete action plan and next steps.

Yes, in some circumstances. We are always open to customising our programmes where the need calls for it. A lot of time and thought has gone in to developing the courses to meet the requirements of its participants. Nevertheless, we will always endeavour to work with organisations/people  to create content that is inline with their/your philosophies. Additional costs for customisation may be required.

We have specifically designed our programmes for certain demographics as this leads to more tailored content that speaks to the participant personally. As we learn from feedback and suggestions we will broaden our reach with more versions of courses for other demographics. We recommend where possible following our target group suggestions.

Generally as a rule of thumb the AOP team work on a needs based analysis for every learning situation, adapting our pedagogical approach on what is most suited at the point in time. Nevertheless, we tend to lean towards a more Learning-Centred Pedagogy whilst our pedagogical approach in delivery is a mixture of constructivist, collaborative,  integrative, inquiry based and reflective. 

Our class size minimum requirement is based upon the costs required to meet our running costs and therefore we do offer programmes for smaller classes although it will have  price per participant implication. We also offer online class options which has a varied cost per participant. Please contact us for more details about this.
