This course puts educators in the driving seat. We encourage them to develop their own evidence-based understanding.

The course is suitable for teachers and other educators, whether you are:

  • in the early stages of your career
  • or taking significant responsibilities for educational excellence and actively supporting other professionals

Your background may be from:

  • across educational phases (early years to HE)
  • between educational sectors (schools, museums, colleges and university and educational consultancies)

This diversity helps to create a dynamic and supportive learning environment. You'll learn from each other as well as from the course leaders.
