All of our training is based around the four stage “CAPE” learning cycle:

Connecting to existing knowledge and skills,

Activating new skills through experience and modelling,

Practising and experimenting with the skills and use of the knowledge

Embedding them into practice and in the day to day context of work and life

Our principle aim is to serve the needs of educators not just as workers, but as human beings who have complex balances to achieve across their personal and professional life.

Our coaching and training programmes support the holistic development of educators so that they can perform highly at work and have rewarding and fulfilling home lives and this way I believe that we are  positive role models to young people, as well as good advocates for the profession.
