The NLC actively applies the learning by doing approach, and focuses on development of the learners’ critical thinking, self-confidence and self-reliance.

Promoting students’ social and emotional skills through the educational process plays important role in the educational concept of Doga schools as an important means for engagement in the education and also for advancement of students’ academic performance.
