Exploring values

"Creativity is not some exotic, optional extra. It's a strategic issue."

Sir Ken Robinson, 2011

Following the successful completion of the national pilot project, 'Leading Through Values', Lifeworlds are now offering a number of courses, workshops and opportunities for educators and organisations to further explore values.

These will be led by the same delivery team as the LTV project and share the latest understanding and practice of learning through values.

Find out how we can support you to think about values in schools or organisations.

Images for learning

Lifeworlds are pleased to announce that their photographic venture, 'Listening Eye Images', will soon be available for schools and organisations to use more directly.

Listening Eye Images have already featured in international publications and websites including for the UN and British Council. If you would like to find out about our images then contact us.

To meet with our photographers and learn more about using images for learning across the curriculum, join one of our 'Thinking beyond the lens' courses for teachers and other educators.

We will update you on progress with the new image projects, resources and opportunities soon.

Our latest Professional Learning Opportunities include the Getting to Grips series of courses for key areas of learning and the Bringing it Alive series that helps to reinvigorate or deepen learning and activity in schools.

Popular courses like Reading Our World are still there and we are inviting initial interest in our study visit projects for 2015.

We have new courses for leaders, co-ordinators as well as new values courses based on our widely acclaimed national pilot project, 'Leading Through Values'. All courses are listed in the relevant sections of this site and more will be added soon.

Reading Our World

A new DfID funded Global Learning Programme (GLP) is now available to support schools in England. Lifeworlds are registering some of their courses as 'Approved training' (see logo above) and have also produced a special cluster model for schools in the GLP to work together with support from us.

If you're a GLP school see what we can offer here.

If you want to know more about GLP then contact us for an informal chat.

Global Learning Programme

Lifeworlds are delighted to be working in partnership with Send a Cow Education to deliver their African Garden Day workshops for primary schools. We will be providing at least 30 workshops in the Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Stockport/Macclesfield areas.

Your school may qualify to receive the workshop free of charge, but if it doesn't then you can still book this hands-on and educational opportunity. Visit the AGD pages to find out more or contact us for an informal chat.

The Lifeworlds team are pleased to have become an Official Eco-Schools England Education Affiliate.

This means we will be providing greater support for Eco-Schools and offering new CPD, resources and pupil workshops to inspire, develop and sustain Eco-Schools activity.

A dedicated Eco-Schools@Lifeworlds page will be available soon, but in the mean time please contact us with any requests or queries.
