We are delighted to offer Level 1 Philosophy for Children (P4C) training for primary and secondary teachers, as well as for teaching assistants who have involvement with teaching and learning. This new online course, adapted from the existing Level 1 course, comprises Zoom online modules and participant offline tasks and runs over 3 half day sessions of 4 hours each (split into two 2 hour sessions with a break in between) -this allows participants to try out activities in lessons between the sessions and share practice in the training itself.
Philosophy for Children, or P4C, is an approach to teaching and learning, in which children take part in philosophical enquiry. It enhances thinking and communication skills, boosts confidence and self-esteem, and improves behaviour and academic attainment. Recognised as having a significant impact, through P4C, which is flexible and can be accommodated in any school setting, children develop their skills and understanding over time through becoming skilled at high quality thinking, questioning and dialogue
You must attend all 3 sessions to access the accreditation
This recognised and certified training from Sapere (the national P4C body) will enable you to:

The Level 1 course:

“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”.
