Stated learning outcomes for this course

Suitable for primary and secondary teachers, SAPERE’s accredited Level 1 course provides an introduction to Philosophy for Children (P4C). Delegates receive 12 hours tuition (over two days) from a registered SAPERE trainer and leave with the skills necessary to start practising P4C in the classroom straight away. A course certificate is issued on completion of an individual’s first P4C session.

P4C can be a highly effective way of helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds to close the attainment gap in relation to more advantaged pupils.  Because P4C is primarily a verbal approach, it is well suited to those who start with lower skills in literacy and numeracy

Teachers benefit from P4C too. P4C facilitators often build increased skill and confidence in using open-ended questioning techniques, giving children more opportunities to think rather than to accept.
