Planning for thinking

The Universal thinking framework

Design inclusive learning activities that really stretch your pupils. Our framework acts as a 'Cognitive Sat Nav' helping educators to guide their pupils to mastery learning.

The thinking toolkit

The popular brick-building methodology extends your students cognitive bandwidth. Enabling your class to 'think outside their head' increases the chances of getting that key idea to stick. It's cross-curricular and cross-phase.

Understanding cognition

Monitoring progress

Our observational tools help teaching staff make expert judgements about their learners. We support schools by devising research projects and facilitating professional learning activities.

"Let's get them really thinking"

This engaging approach addresses two important agendas. How can we utilise cognitive science to improve attainment and how do we prepare children to be successful beyond school.

We are putting the process of learning under the microscope and rethinking what skill sets our students will need to thrive in a changing world.
