Optima programmes teach the right things, not everything, so that everyone learns.
When the teaching is right learning becomes effortless. The key issue therefore, is determining what and how to teach. Our research has identified the most useful and generalisable skills to teach as well as highlighting many skills that are effectively redundant since they occur infrequently or are not generalisable. Optima programmes concentrate on the right things, not everything, so that everyone learns. Thus, by researching what is most useful to them, Optima gives teachers more time to teach.
