A 2 Day Event

£100 per person for Inspire Schools
£125 per person for non-Inspire Schools

‘P4C’, Philosophy for Children is an exceptionally powerful tool for developing thinking. It is a collaborative, democratic activity that is of proven value in building self and mutual respect in participants as well as improving the level of their thinking. The method is suitable for all KS and functions well across the curriculum. Recent Education Endowment Fund (EEF) findings confirm that attainment and behaviour are positively influenced by P4C and a greater improvement in less socially advantaged children than in others was measured. Inspire is pleased to offer a certificated Level 1 Foundation Course to staff in its member schools This is a two-day, non-residential course, it focuses on the theory and practice of P4C, and aims to provide delegates with sufficient understanding to facilitate philosophical enquiries with their own learners.
