berylBeryl Lourens - Founder and Director
Beryl, believes strongly that most education systems are letting down many of our children and young people (both left and right-brain dominant learners) because the curriculum and largely traditional classroom methods and assessments do not engage the whole brain but are geared mostly to left-brain dominant learners.

This leaves the intelligent right-brain dominant learners unable to think and learn through their right brain skills and gifts so they are most often seen as underachievers. It means the left-brain dominant learners, who mostly achieve in school, do not have a chance to develop the right-brain skills that are required more and more in today and tomorrow’s world of work.

Beryl is therefore passionate about identifying the inherent learning and thinking styles of students so that they can think and learn according to their brain preferences, when studying and working at home.
She believes that all Right-Brain dominant students should know how they learn best and why they struggle in a left-brain orientated education system, so that they can believe in their ability to learn well. Every Left-Brain dominant student should realise the necessity for them to develop right brain skills to equip them for the needs of the 21st century world.

Throughout her career as classroom teacher, school principal, education consultant, workshop facilitator, author and educational materials developer, Beryl has travelled extensively in search of ‘best practice’ models of teaching and learning.
She continues to keep abreast of on-going high quality research so that The Centre for Life-Long Learning can continue to give students the best the world has to offer in Brain-Based Teaching and Learning.

Beryl has worked with, and developed programmes for, teachers, parents, students, NGO’s, government departments, communities, traditional leaders, small businesses and some of South Africa’s top corporate companies. She has vast experience in the fields of learning styles, multiple intelligence, emotional intelligence, emotionally safe schools. educational material development for different styles of learning, personal development, leadership and the design, piloting and rolling out of educational programmes.

Her work has been recognised both here and internationally.
