Setting Targets for Achievement at asphaleia training College

As the last bit of tinsel is packed away and the pounding headache of New Year’s day thankfully loses its strength, we are then left to ponder resolutions that will improve our lives and well-being. Some opt for Dry January; many will attempt, some more successful than others, to push aside the habit of smoking; while others seek new careers with new opportunities and new challenges. We are no strangers to progress and achievement at asphaleia college, which is why review week at the start of 2019 has given our learners the opportunity to set targets, realise their potential and open up a world full of achievement and opportunity.

Education and qualification targets

Eyes on the prize!

Even seemingly small targets, such as: ‘answer questions in front of the class’, ‘participate in some work experience’, or ‘achieve my first qualification in English’ enable our learners to focus on overcoming their challenges so that progress is recognised, confidence is gained and new targets can be set. Chipping away these small targets allows us to climb, bit-by-bit, our own personal Everest.

At our next review in three months’ time, when others have fallen off the New-Year’s-resolution-wagon or have sneaked outside for a cheeky cigarette; we will have learners who have held their hands high, taken their first steps into employment and passed that first English qualification.
