Interested in exploring work that links learning with relationships, and with real change? Wanting to deepen and extend your practice as teachers, helpers and pedagogues – or working with others around their thinking, feelings and processes in these roles?
Our focus here is on developing everyday work with children, young people, families and communities. Sometimes described as informal education, community learning and development, or social pedagogy, important innovations are being made in different sectors. These include residential care, specialist education, mainstream schooling, youth projects, churches, housing and outdoor learning. You will find a blog on these pages that will point to some of these developments, and the issues and contexts they address. There are also details of some of the work I am involved in.
Developing Learning Ltd is a small company that supports organizations to think about, and implement, changes in the way they work with children, young people, families and communities.
