The Real World Skills Programme (RWS) is an extension of our academic programme. REAL Education has in place specific RWS programmes that will run in the course of every academic year to enrich the student’s education and impart these vital skills.
Sporting & Outdoor Survival Skills
Performing Arts Skills
REAL Schools has a strong emphasis on Digital Skills because these skills will be in high demand in the 4IR (4th Industrial Revolution) era. This is the time when industry and commerce, lifestyle and culture, will be underpinned by the Internet and mobile computing.
In the 4IR world, the best jobs will be the ones you create for yourself. The digital environment and the Internet, powered by 5G technology, empower individuals to pursue their ideas and dreams. Entrepreneurship demands different skill sets, needing to both manage the business as well as market products and services.
In the real world, national boundaries will fade and more and more people will be global citizens and very likely to work in several countries in their career lifetime. REAL Schools seek to help our students be more globally aware, culturally sensitive and adaptable to different environments.
In a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, where situations are complex and uncertain, our principles, values and morals can be similarly clouded. REAL Schools wants to give students experiences and encounters that will help develop their goodness, compassion, justice, and moral courage.
Science and Technology, underpinned by Mathematics, has shaped the world around us for many centuries, and especially the past few decades. As the 4IR takes over in this present age, the fundamentals of scientific inquiry and mathematics will continue to play vital roles, powering innovation and technological advancements. REAL Schools pride themselves on their core strength in Science and Mathematics academically.
Language is a vital skill and the more languages a student knows, the greater will be the capacity to learn. Beyond linguistic skills, Communication Skills also include the ability to get across your ideas, describe your experiences and even express your feelings about something. Finally, communication is also about the ability to listen, to understand, and to empathise.
Physical exercise is vital to maintaining a high level of physical fitness. REAL Schools is committed to cultivating a healthy, balanced lifestyle in our students. At the same time acquiring survival skills such as first aid and self-defence will enable students to be prepared for any emergency situations.
Design and Innovation are some of the most highly rewarded skills these days. In a world where copies abound, the ability to stand out from the crowd, to think outside the box and to see challenges in fresh ways will be highly sought after.
Confidence to speak and perform, skills in expression and communication — these will be vital qualities for students to succeed in the real world where creating a good impression will make a person stand out and open doors and opportunities.
Educationists describe the real world as VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) and this poses real challenges to students who will be building a life in that VUCA world. In response, REAL Schools offer a comprehensive care system that provides mental and emotional support services to students, and have a comprehensive programme of talks and workshops to help them develop the resilient and self-coping skills they need to grow into healthy, well rounded and independent young adults.
