Short Term Programmes

short term programmes

DAS Short Term Programmes (STPs) are designed to provide students with skills, strategies and exposure to various subject matters or topics that will enhance their preparedness and confidence in their school work and unleash their talents in the areas of their interest. Each STP would focus on specific subject content. The STPs would run for at least 10 hours over a term or during the June or December school holidays.

The standard programmes offered to cater to the long term needs of our students. These help to progressively build our student’s foundation in literacy, numeracy, exams skills and other needs. The Short Term Programmes (STP) are short term courses designed to cater to the specific needs or topics our students typically would struggle with.

Each STP class is catered to 6-8 students to ensure that teachers are able to attend to the individual needs of students. This is particularly important for struggling learners.
Yes, bursary is available for Short Term Programmes for both das and non-DAS students with a diagnosis of dyslexia.
No. The skills taught in each STP are cumulative, so if students join the programme midterm, they will not be able to catch up with concepts and topics taught during the first few weeks.
Links are available on the description page for each STP for online application. Alternatively, you can register at any DAS Learning Centre.
