Weekend Workshops

At Alpert Enterprises International, we are committed to facilitating, inspiring and celebrating excellence amongst students. The Pegasus Student Program is a sector of AEI dedicated solely to giving motivated, high potential students opportunities to develop further and excel in the academic areas they are most passionate about.

As part of the Pegasus Program, AEI’s EXCEL Workshops are run twice per term, for Year 7-10 students. These weekend workshops are perfect for students, who are keen to improve their knowledge and skills in a particular subject area, such as English, Mathematics, or Science. Students are divided into two groups: Years 7-8 & Years 9-10. All EXCEL Workshops are held at one location: A school in the Brisbane CBD area. All workshop presenters are registered teachers with the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT). They have been selected to run an EXCEL Workshop, due to their exceptional abilities as teachers of English, Science or Mathematics and their ability to make learning exciting for their students.

AEI's Writing Workshops, for instance, are perfect for students who are really motivated to learn and are keen to improve their writing skills. Students are divided into two groups: Year 7-8 and Year 9-10. Four workshop are run concurrently (two workshops for Year 7-8 and two workshops for Year 9-10). There are no more than 15 students in each workshop, as we prioritise individualized feedback. These two day, writing workshops are designed to help students improve their creative writing, persuasive writing, and analytical writing skills.

Cost for the two day EXCEL Program is $270 for AEI Members and $300 for non-members.
