  1. Tailored to your needs

    One of the most important aspects of the training we offer is that it is tailored exactly to the needs of each school we visit. We recently returned to a school we first worked with a couple of years ago and found them still passionate about philosophy. As there were several teachers new to the school we split into two groups – Dot lead one group through what philosophy is and, just as important, what it is not! The second group, who had been using philosophy for some time, looked at the role of facilitator and developing questioning techniques. Feedback from both groups was very positive “…lots of good ideas on questioning to extend children” and, from a teacher new to philosophy, “I would feel confident holding a philosophy session after this training session”.
