“Through a focus on developing key learning skills rather than merely knowledge [acquisition], the A-level results rose steadily from 38% A*-B in 2007 to 60% A*-B in 2012 without any change in the standard of intake.”
— Paul SandersonDirector of Teaching and Learning, Gordonstoun

The Learning Journey
Our Learning Journey map is designed to guide you through the process of Building Learning Power in your school. Find out where you and your school are on the journey, see the possibilities in what lies ahead, and get under way with your own learning adventure.
Guided by the latest thinking in professional learning, our progressive modular programmes are designed to support teachers who are building learning power in their schools. The nature of the courses ensure that your school will start and stay on the right track. Each course has four stepping stone stages to ensure progress:
Step one encourages you to think deeply about the nature of learning using online material
Step two involves clarification and exploration of key concepts in a team session, guided by our session framework
Step three gives you the opportunity for real experimentation in the classroom, supported by a wealth of downloadable resources
Step four brings the process round in a group feedback session to review the results of the changes you have made to your practice and plan your next steps
