The flexibility of the virtual classroom allows families a significant advantage as students can attend classes from anywhere in the world. They can study from the bed with their emotional support dog by their side, or go to class wearing slippers!

It takes the fear that many kids experience out of school, while learners can still socialise with their global classmates online during a time of social distancing. 

Students have a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips, and our teachers emphasise that the possibilities for those who are truly curious are almost endless.

Valenture's faculty of highly-experienced teachers, in both traditional and online school environments, say they love teaching online for so many reasons. And it's not just because they don't have to sit in traffic on the way to a brick and mortar school every day.

"I like the fact that my students and I can be anywhere in the world, and we can connect on our shared appreciation for knowledge and wisdom. I also love the fact that we can see each others' faces without having to wear a mask." - Liebe, Business Studies teacher.

"Seeing each other's physical context - a sighting of a parent, sibling, crazy poster or a pet." - Danielle, Languages teacher.

"I love the ease of incorporating dozens of amazing online resources." - Garth, Dean of Maths.

"Connecting with humans! Laughing! Having fun! Helping people reach their dreams! Learning! Exploring!" - Steven, Chemistry teacher. 

"I always appreciate the opportunity to be creative and the online space presents a variety of new ways to perform demonstrations or undertake lessons."- Thomas, Geography teacher. 

"I love it when the students have those 'Aha!' moments and understand something for the first time." - Chanel, Physics and Science teacher. 

"The connection I have with my students and to see how real friendships have developed even though students may live in different parts of the world." - Gareth, Dean of Business.
