We offer a full range of training and support, through our own team of accredited trainers and via our international partner organisations.

All our training courses are available online or in-person. Their modular structure maximises our flexibility in tailoring our offer to your needs. We offer foundation training to get you started, advanced training to deepen your competence and trainer training so you can pass the approach on to others.

We provide CPD in all aspects of Thinking Moves A – Z and P4C Plus.  We offer open courses, in-school training and online CPD for teams of up to 25 teachers, as well as trainer training, coaching and mentoring.

Alongside the challenges of re-establishing normal school life, we see the post-lockdown return to schools as an opportunity to re-focus on some of the things that really matter in education.  Schools don’t need simply to build back the same:  out of the COVID-19 crisis comes an opportunity to re-think.  Our training and support programmes can help you do just this.
