3 Strikes Incentive Scheme

To incentivise students to finish the program in its entirety, we have opted for a “3-strikes out” incentive scheme. The scheme works as follows. At the start of the program, the student provides an upfront deposit of ANG. 400,-.

However, failing to meet the scheduled learning objectives during the course, will result in a strike. For each consecutive time a student fails to meet the scheduled learning objective, another strike is incurred. Three strikes will result in exclusion from the program. At that point the total progress of the student will be evaluated and expressed in a percentage. This percentage of the deposit will then be reimbursed.

If the student is back on track before incurring 3 strikes , the number of accumulated strikes will be reset to zero.
If the entire program has been completed, this deposit will be reimbursed in full. And the program will effectively be free.
