Student-centred learning incorporates the individual interests and strengths of students in the learning process, creating a fruitful and engaging learning environment, where students have ownership of their own learning processes. If students can feel that they are more ‘in charge’ of their learning own processes, this can result in a high degree of engagement and motivation, and these learners have an opportunity to work at their own pace and explore their own interests more. At institution level this requires an integrated, collaborative approach, aimed at creating a learning environment where students feel that the school is in touch with their needs. A student-centred environment also means considering, assessing and providing the necessary support to help individuals deal with personal barriers and difficulties that they might face, and hence support systems are developed that can be sensitive to individual needs.
