Challenging Learning and Coronavirus (Covid-19)

We know these are challenging times, we want you to know that we’ll be here to help and do everything we can!

In response to this we have created a Home Learning page for parents with regularly updated activities to share with kids, inspiring discussion, exploration, and creative thinking.

We Help You Make the Changes You Want

We don’t have any pre-determined programs or scripts. Instead, we begin by understanding your context and strengths, and then help you to fine-tune what you already do.
The gains achieved by the 450+ schools and pre-schools in 11 countries that have so far used our processes to strengthen learning include:
  • Increased staff engagement and satisfaction;
  • Improved student motivation, resilience and curiosity;
  • The development of a shared language for learning within and between different organisations;
  • Better use of feedback, questioning and dialogue to enhance student learning;
  • A healthier attitude towards challenge, progress and achievement.
