Achieve Lifeskills and Character Education is first and foremost an educational body that is involved in promoting learning amongst children and young people.  Its purpose is to educate and serve, and to be complementary to parenting and to formal school academic education.

The curriculum is basically divided into the following parts, with a number of levels in each part:

A.  Elementary (primary) school level
(typically years 5 & 6; ages 10 to 12)
B.  Secondary school level  (typically years 12 to 18)
C. Tertiary education level
D. Job Seekers
E. Adults (parents and carers)


The following list, in no special order, is a summary of the many subjects that will be covered by the Achieve Lifeskills and Character Education (ALCE) curriculum.  Our curriculum needs to always remain dynamic to change so that it may serve and teach in the most effective manner possible.  By dynamic, we mean being able to change to suit time, geography or demography.
