Many of the challenges that learners could face may relate to factors that you might not realise are a challenge. For some learners, the process of balancing time between education, family, sport, and social life is difficult and they have never had to balance or prioritise life before. For others, a challenge will be asking for help in an environment where they don’t feel confident or managing their emotions when they get a mid-range score in a new class, when they have always been at the top of the class. Regardless of the challenge, this section will highlight many of the challenges that learners face.
