Participants must have completed the Level 2B course (including analytic course report) or the old style Level 2 course (plus assignment), and have practised P4C regularly for at least 2 years.

Participants will engage critically with the educational and philosophical perspectives that underpin P4C, and develop the understanding of P4C necessary to facilitate advanced P4C enquiries.
