All our publications are, in one way or another, about learning. Some are up-to-the minute gripping reads on what learning is all about. Others offer practical school-based ideas about how to put ‘learning about learning’ into practice. Our publications are designed to delight and enthuse the reader to put the ideas into practice – be they teachers, learning assistants, learning mentors, senior leadership teams or parents.
The style of the books is practical, honest and reflective, full of real life examples and evidence of a wide range of different kinds. For schools that are deepening the learning practice in classrooms many of these books are required reading. For those of you who are waiting for inspiration, look no further. Our publications will intrigue you and spur you into putting learning at the heart of your endeavours.
