Human-centred education can be characterized as an holistic approach to curriculum and assessment, flowing from human relations between teachers, students, parents and other members of the community, and is achieved through addressing the unity of human experience as a whole, within a stimulating human environment in the school classroom, playground, community and beyond.
Practice concerns itself with the development of personal qualities and dispositions such as curiosity, caring for others and inner integrity to actively engage and empower learners to shape rich, meaningful and flourishing experiences at school and in adult life and learning.

- Emotional literacy
By activating such an approach we may harness this potential to transform our understanding of the aims of education, the nature of learning, and the relationships between individuals in schools as learning-communities where adults and young people and valued and respected for who they are and supported and guided accordingly.
