In 2001, TLO Limited started working closely with Professor Guy Claxton, as consultant and chief inspiration, on what was soon to become known as Building Learning Power™. Since then we have worked with, and been further inspired by, many schools, teachers and young people, as we have sought to create a programme to translate Guy’s ideas into successful, everyday practice. For schools committed to expanding their students’ powers as learners, TLO Limited on this site offer a growing range of publications, professional development and conferences to stimulate and extend practice in Building Learning Power.
