Our Five Programmes

The Europe Tutorial Academy offers courses in five different types of programme areas:

  • Distance learning
  • Online Tutoring
  • On-Demand Coaching
  • Enrichment Workshop
  • Study Retreat

Distance Learning

All our E.T.A. online distance learning course units are especially designed for individual student self-learning with the main course content is broken up into manageable sections to establish robust foundations for staged learning, self-reflection and offer frequent opportunities to check understanding. Each distance learning unit concludes with the student completing an integrated online assessment. Once this assessment is submitted, the student will receive instant feedback, and an individualised report and certificate of course completion.

Online Tutoring

Our Online Tutoring programmes are very flexible. Each tutoring programme is based on a package of five hours of Tutor lessons delivered on the online whiteboard, and can last up to a maximum of TWO months. All our E.T.A. Online Tutoring courses are especially designed for individual student learning, and are delivered from their own tutorial course page on the E.T.A. website. Each Online Tutoring course has a dedicated tutor who co-ordinates and guides the student throughout the duration of the programme. Typical Types of Online Tutorial Programmes include a “booster”tutorial programme designed to give you a mid-course stimulus, and a  “revision” tutorial programme designed to consolidate your learning to date and check on the effectiveness of your learning strategies.

On-Demand Coaching

Our On-Demand Coaching Programmes are very flexible. Each coaching programme is based on a package of ten hours of Coaching-led sessions delivered on the online whiteboard, and can last up to a maximum of THREE months. All our E.T.A. On-Demand Coaching Programmes are especially designed for individual student coaching, and are delivered from their own coaching programme page on the E.T.A. website. Each On-Demand Coaching Programme has a dedicated tutor-coach who co-ordinates and guides the student throughout the duration of the programme. Your Coach will also build-in frequent opportunities for you to check your own understanding and development – which will include gaining feedback from SCHEDULED formative assessments.

Educational Enrichment Workshops

A fundamental goal of the E.T.A. learning enrichment programmes is to expose the students of today – who will after all be the leaders of tomorrow, to methodologies and mindsets beyond that offered in traditional European pre-university curricula. The core of our enrichment programme ethos is the notion of “beyond borders”: to empower students to intellectually and collectively reach beyond and across geographical borders, to individually reach beyond their own (self- and societally-imposed) boundaries, and to think across artificially imposed subject borders. For such a “sharing of learning experiences and knowledge acquisition across borders”, we maintain at E.T.A., can provide fresh insights (individually and collectively).

The E.T.A. educational enrichment workshops come in two types of Series:

Adult Study Retreats

It is never too late for any of us to gain exposure to new ideas or restudy “old-learning” through a mature lens. Indeed,it is this principle, that is at the centre of the Europe Tutorial Academy Adult Study Retreats. For our retreats are aimed at adults who wish to continue some form of semi-formal learning. Be it to seek exposure to an intellectual stimulus, pursue a particular interest, or simply to spend time studying with fellow enthusiasts. Much of the support material for our Adult Study Retreats include contributions from seminal texts, works and ideas by some of the world’s most interesting and influential thinkers. And some of our retreats are designed to encourage in our participants a critique of an orthodox viewpoint or established paradigm, and subsequently to collectively seek alternative (possibly heterodox) approaches to solutions. We welcome applications from participants in all walks of life and at various stages of their careers. Our Study Retreats for Adults are offered in the three strands of Philosophy, Literature and Language, each with their own sub-themes.
