Challenging Learning is an independent consultancy founded by James and Jill Nottingham.
We share teaching and leadership practices that have the biggest impact on learning progress. These are all based on the most up-to-date and compelling evidence about what helps young people to lead stronger lives.
Using face-to-face and virtual consulting, accredited courses, and online learning, our expert team tailor-makes professional development to match context, budget and learning objectives.
Our long-term projects guide teachers, leaders and support staff in the implementation of actions that significantly strengthen student learning. Our presentations challenge and inspire; our consulting processes guide and encourage; Our resources engage and demonstrate.
Within our team, we have Australian, British, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish employees. This encourages us to connect global excellence with local strategy. We also collaborate purposefully and productively with partner organisations to strengthen learning further afield.
We have a proven track record in teaching and leadership, and maintain these skills by leading demonstration lessons, professional coaching and our own action learning cycles.
Everything we do is designed to inspire and challenge people to develop ever more effective strategies for learning.
Proving is good; improving is better.
