What is SAIL?

Student Agency in Learning

“To infinity and beyond”

Kunskapsskolan is a personalised learning approach developed in Sweden which looks at student agency in learning (SAIL). This approach develops learners through student led, project-based learning accompanied by goal setting and coaching sessions.  

SAIL looks at giving our learners the opportunity to develop the skills needed to be self-directed throughout their learning journey. SAIL helps learners to take responsibility for their own learning and to understand what they are learning and why. 

This approach empowers the learners to push themselves further than they ever thought possible and achieve things that they thought where beyond their reach. This improves learner’s academic attainment whilst also providing them with the opportunity to develop skills they will need to succeed throughout their lives. 


We already believe in our learners, why shouldn't they start to believe in themselves?
