  1. Enabling students to mature as people and to develop a positive approach to their own learning.
  2. To increase students’ self-awareness and self-confidence.
  3. To provide students with experience of the world of work.
  4. To foster a spirit of enterprise and initiative.
  5. To provide opportunities for personal growth through participation in various activities and voluntary work.
