We are delighted to offer Thinking Moves A-Z training for primary and secondary teachers, as well as for teaching assistants who have involvement with teaching and learning. This new online course comprises 3 twilight Zoom sessions of 1.5 hours each, spread over a 6 week period - allowing participants to try out activities in lessons between the sessions and share practice in the training itself.
Our thinking ability is what makes us distinctively human. Yet we have no generally accepted approach to teaching thinking – and no common vocabulary to describe different ways of thinking. This, when you think about it, is extraordinary. Imagine trying to teach or learn maths if we did not have commonly accepted terms such as add, subtract, multiply and divide!
Thinking Moves A – Z provides a vocabulary for thinking. The moves themselves are not all new – we all use them in our learning and our life every day. But now we have a powerful way of talking about how we think, and that gives us a means to work on improving the effectiveness of our thinking.
The three twilight training sessions will enable delegates to:
Become familiar with Thinking Moves A – Z
Understand how to build Thinking Moves into the curriculum
Understand how Thinking Moves can enrich enquiry based learning
Get practical guidance on how to embed Thinking Moves into your school’s teaching and learning
Thinking Moves A-Z is an amazingly engaging, fun and flexible approach which develops the powerful and effective metacognition and self-regulation that can accelerate the progress and learning of your children. A new and innovative course that is likely to be very popular, so secure your place as soon as possible.
“As a trainer and coach you have been easy to talk to whilst also being appropriately challenging! I also always felt that you understood our school and context and were therefore excellent at guiding us through the next stages of our journey”.

“Jeremy was encouraging of all delegates to participate, remain in touch with any queries they may have / share P4C experiences and he wrote to delegates after the course to share further resources”.

A very accomplished trainer, Jeremy engages and communicates with delegates on his courses with the same enthusiasm and inspiration he brings to the classroom.
