Meaningful Teacher Development

The cognition workshops and professional practice program will help your school make the long-term changes that lead to sustainable improvements in learning outcomes. On it's own, traditional 'Inset' based PD has very little impact on student outcomes. Our design thinking mantra enables teachers to make the changes they want to see.

Professional Practice Program: FAQ's

How do we embed evidence?

We have found that small 'modules' of professional development embedded into the program help staff to reframe their classroom practice.

What is design thinking?

It's basically practical problem-solving. We carefully unpick student need and then use this to design different learning experiences. We help you unravel classroom complexity into actionable steps.

What year groups is this for?

We have teaching staff from EYFS all the way up to KS5. The cognitive principles are universal and can be adapted and applied across concepts, topics and age groups.

How much does this cost?

It depends upon the size of the project. We want to make sure that your investment in resources is well utilised. Please talk to us for a quote.

How is it delivered?

For the R&D project, at least 4 twilight sessions will need to be allocated over an academic term.

What support is available?

An R&D launch meeting gives staff the opportunity to 'play' with new tools and ideas. The teachers research journal simplifies the design thinking approach into digestible steps.
