Vision for Learning provides highly practical and engaging CPD for educators. It’s based on tried and tested learning processes, which put the learner at the heart of the experience. If you have a training need to get the very best from your staff, we can help you.
I’m Will Thomas, award-winning author, teacher and trainer. I’ve been working in the education sector now for over 25 years and in training and coaching for 15 of those. With over 12,000 hours of coaching and training experience I know that your CPD needs to be relevant, personalised and packed with immediately useful strategies. So that’s what I aim to give you every time. Our monthly research and resources journal is a FREE publication sent by email each month. It’s a succinct collection of short articles on relevant topics in education, coaching, leadership and performance psychology. You can get your copy by registering on this page.

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.
What we believe
Learning is a personal process and that we learn best through doing, discussing, experimenting and asking questions. That’s why you’ll either work with us individually or in smaller groups.
We believe that children need to make progress academically, but that society needs young people who leave school emotionally literate and “self- and others-aware”. Sausage-factory schooling is not education. It’s factory farming human lives and it ignores the need for compassion and emotional balance, as well as the capacity to reason, and take responsibility. Education should value all aspects of a child’s intelligence, talent and interest.
About current education policy:
All too often the pressure cooker of modern schooling turns children off learning, and disenfranchises them. We believe that healthy well-educated children come from healthy and well-led adults in schools who act as positive role models.
We are about taking care of adults as well of children in the work place.
Every child matters and every adult matters too
