Foundation Training

The starting point is two days of Foundation training, based on the well-established and strongly-evidenced P4C methodology. This training equips teachers to conduct philosophical inquiries with their students in a Community of Inquiry.  This is a safe space where students and teachers can start to explore philosophical concepts and develop their skills of Philosophical Teaching and Learning.

Advanced Training

The Foundation training is followed up after 6 – 12 months by three days of Advanced training in Philosophical Teaching, with different versions for primary and secondary teachers. This training helps teachers develop specific skills for taking Philosophical Teaching and Learning into all areas of the curriculum. The three days can be taken in any desired configuration: they consist of deep dives into the six strands of Philosophical Teaching.

Training for IB Schools

This training is especially well-suited to International Baccalaureate and other schools practising Inquiry-Based Learning.  Our fees are consistent with IB norms and are based on the number of days training and support required.
