Our in-depth professional learning processes are at the core of what we do at Challenging Learning. It is these processes that lead to the greatest benefit for staff, students, and community members.
Since our inception in 2006, we have worked with more than 600 schools, pre-schools, colleges and municipalities/districts in 12 countries on long-term processes that have achieved sustained and proven results. Typical gains include increased staff engagement and satisfaction; improved student motivation, resilience and curiosity; the development of a shared language for learning within and between different sectors; better use of feedback and dialogue to enhance student learning; and a healthier attitude towards challenge, progress and achievement.
No two projects are the same. We understand that whilst most schools, pre-schools, and colleges share common issues, it is the make-up of your structures, staff, culture, history, location, budget, parents and students that make you unique.
Our long-term processes are based around three different models: The Challenging Learning Process (based on our experience of best practice); Visible LearningPlus (based on John Hattie’s synthesis of more than 1400 meta-analyses): and the Learning Challenge Network (based on James Nottingham’s Learning Pit).
You can find out more about each of these below. You are also very welcome to ask us to put you in touch with those currently engaged in our processes so that you can find out about the benefits they are experiencing.
