Hands on Learning


Hands On Learning (HoL) is an innovative education program that caters to the different ways young people learn.

ECOSS artisan-teachers work collaboratively with small groups of cross-age students on authentic building projects that provide a platform for students to engage, grow confidence and achieve success at school.

HoL fosters strong, long term relationships that help young people develop the skills and abilities they need to succeed in work and life like collaboration, problem solving, communication, resilience and empathy.
