Have a Question?
1. What do I need to attend your classes?
All our live classes are conducted online in small groups using cutting-edge virtual learning tools. Your child will need access to a computer with a built-in microphone and webcam, as well as a strong internet connection.
Some classes require additional resources like pens and paper, however, our classes are designed with everyday materials in mind, especially stuff commonly found around the house.
Should your child be required to make use of a third-party tool like an app or website, steps on how to install / access the platform will be explained in our course welcome pack.
2. Can I change the dates / times of classes?
All our classes are conducted live, therefore dates / times cannot be changed. We believe that by providing live classes, our students are able to actively take part in the lessons, ask questions and provide feedback. Once students register, they commit to completing the class on the specified days and times.
Our classes are presented throughout the year – we encourage parents and students to keep an eye on our website for future dates if they are not able to complete a class on the stipulated dates / times.
3. How can I follow up on my child's progress?
After each class, students complete a short quiz challenge or do a practical assignment. When they pass these challenges, students will receive a cool Bravespace Academy certificate as evidence. Parents are also welcome to contact our academy via email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Live, Engaging & Safe!
None of our lessons are pre-recorded. All our classes are conducted LIVE in small groups. This makes the learning experience more engaging and enables students to ask questions. Parents are also updated on their child’s progress.
NETFLIX FOR KIDS
Instead of being a couch potato, we encourage out-of-this-world screen time! All of our lessons are super fun, hands-on and presented by highly-qualified teachers with international experience.
Our goal is to provide students with a safe and innovative learning space. All our ‘Captains’ (teachers) have been thoroughly screened. Our classes also offer an ad-free experience and a space where we encourage braveness.
How it Works:
Students learn new skills in an engaging and collaborative world-class virtual learning environment. After students have enrolled in one of our classes, they will receive a class welcome email with details that explains everything they need to know, including how to access our online classes.
Our students don’t simply learn content, but truly explore with it. They actively take part in classes by completing challenges, sharing ideas and having discussions. We not only equip students with theoretical knowledge, but also empower them with future-ready skills through a variety of exciting hands-on projects. Students also receive resources after each course, including interactive notes and other great resources.
We all love being rewarded for our hard work! At the end of each class, students will complete fun assessments in their own time. This includes quizzes, engaging challenges and fascinating projects. Once students have completed all the assessments, they will receive a cool class certificate!
