Further Information

  • Ideal for school networks and clusters although each workshop is also available for individual schools that wish to ensure all staff are fully confident with BLP approaches.
  • When used in school networks we advise a minimum of two participants per school to enable ease of transfer of the ideas into the school..
  • The programme is challenging and requires participants to undertake or manage learning enquiries across the school between sessions.
  • Programme workshops will be spaced to meet
    school needs.
  • Participants should, wherever possible, have attended Building the Foundations of Learning Power (level 1) since this level 2 programme assumes previous knowledge and experience.
