Teaching and Learning Materials and Programmes

Teaching and Learning Materials and Programmes

We help organisations understand how schools work, how children learn and how families engage with learning opportunities.

We work in partnership with businesses to establish clear aims for projects, key opportunities for learning, key resources for development, and pathways to implementation, delivery and review.

Our commitment to quality education and context-rich curriculum materials has enabled us to work with a number of organisations to design and deliver innovative and bespoke teaching and learning materials and programmes.

Our process for developing and designing materials and programmes is summarised in the diagram below.
