P4C Foundation Course Level 1

You can now reserve places on our new online P4C Foundation Course Level 1

With face-to-face training temporarily suspended, our online Level 1 is a great opportunity to train now to be ready to introduce P4C to students, both online and in the classroom.

The course is delivered via Zoom, in three four-hour modules over three weeks, and offers a cost-effective and flexible way for teachers to engage in CPD. It can be accessed from home or from a workspace. Numbers are limited to just twelve on each course.

We have temporarily suspended course bookings for our face-to-face Level 1 courses but hope to run a full programme of courses from autumn 2020. Please check back regularly for updates.

Start practising P4C with your students

Our courses will enable you to start practising P4C with your students straight away. You will learn how to: 

  • encourage philosophical questioning and dialogue
  • facilitate a P4C enquiry in your classroom
  • identify resources to stimulate rich discussions among your students

The Level 1 course:

  • introduces the theory and practice of P4C
  • provides tools to develop students’ questioning and thinking skills
  • connects P4C to the curriculum
  • demonstrates philosophical enquiry in practice
  • presents P4C resources and sources of teaching materials

Completion of the course and the facilitation of six P4C sessions will qualify you for a SAPERE P4C Initial Practitioner Certificate.
