Premium resources

We provide a wide range of premium resources to schools and individual teachers. As well as having unlimited access to the resources via our website, we will send a regular supply of such resources to our client schools and education providers.  The resources will be available as an on-line feed which teachers can access directly in the classroom, mitigating the need for time consuming searches for appropriate materials.  Schools will be able to integrate our on-line feed into their Virtual Learning Environments or web pages, ensuring that they have a constantly up-to-date resource pool. These resources include our:

  • P4C Skills Builder: a 5 part, 25 week set of training materials and lesson plans, designed to complement all formats of P4C foundation training, and to equip P4C leaders to coach new staff in their first year of P4C practice;
  • Thinking Moves A – Z: a 20 week set of lesson plans for the adoption of Thinking Moves by students of all ages;

Pricing is on an annual subscription basis, at £250 per year for whole school access and £50 per year for individual access.
