Who is the course for?
This session is aimed at Primary and Secondary Teachers working in any subject but could easily apply to anybody who works as an educator.

What will I learn?
There is extensive research that demonstrates the positive benefits for children & young people of learning that allows for and encourages independent creative thought and experimentation. Participation by young people in structured activities focused on creativity has been proven to improve academic attainment in secondary-aged students, boost pre-school and primary aged children’s early literacy skills, increase language development and relate learning to real work.


In this course, we explain why independent learning is so beneficial and prompt teachers to re-examine how they think about their teaching and view it through a framework that encourages creativity and independent learning.

Developing Independent Learners uses fun, challenging activities to help teachers make new discoveries and open minds to ‘what if?’, ‘how can we…?’ and ‘let’s try this’. Teachers will learn how to develop a more creative mindset incorporating imagination, a drive to be inquisitive and the confidence to take controlled risks. Teachers will be supported to develop vision, strategy and structures that support creativity and consciously nurture and develop the independent learning capacities of their pupils.

How will pupils benefit?
There is extensive evidence that developing the independent learning capabilities of pupils
• Improves cognitive abilities
• Strengthens language development in younger pupils
• Improves literacy
• Greatly improves problem solving capabilities
• Builds confidence and the ability to work on their own initiative
• Improves resilience and other mental health outcomes

Improvement in these key areas boosts overall academic attainment across subjects.

It also equips pupils with a valuable skillset which is much in demand in the workforce.
