Advanced managerial methods, computer know‐how, with entrepreneurial and financial skills — these are the life blood of a healthy economy. The education system, and probably more specifically the training and development of the adult workforce, caters for many if not all of the areas of commerce and industry that require these particular skills. It is rather surprising that, until fairly recently, the ability to learn how to learn has hardly been questioned. It is, of course, basic to all the advanced skills. The world of education is realising that the young mind does not necessarily know, instinctively, how to learn the lessons set before it. The good teacher, and there are many more than the media will give credit to, understands how to help each child develop his or her true potential. This is often a subconscious understanding of how the students' minds work, rather than a considered and planned attempt to structure their learning.
