We know from experience, and from working with our colleagues in other countries, that it takes significant time and practice to become a skilled facilitator of P4C.
For many teachers in the UK, philosophy is an entirely new subject so our courses are designed to become progressively more philosophically challenging. Therefore it usually takes around 2 years to complete Levels 1, 2A, 2B and 3.
We recommend starting with Level 1, moving on to Level 2A three to six months later, then Level 2B three to six months later and then Level 3 after six to twelve months.
