‘Babies don’t worry about making mistakes or humiliating themselves. They walk, they fall, they get up…What could put an end to this exuberant learning? The fixed mindset. As soon as children become able to evaluate themselves, some of them become afraid of challenges. They become afraid of not being smart.
I have studied thousands of people from preschoolers on, and it’s breathtaking how many reject an opportunity to learn.’
Carol S. Dweck,
An absolute game-changer! The essential starting point for everyone interested in giving EVERY child the opportunity to learn:
Why we need to develop and a ‘Growth Mindset’ in every area of learning: The greatest opportunity we’ve ever had to change the way not only our children feel about themselves as learners, but the way our teachers feel about teaching maths and ultimately the way that society talks about maths.
Learn about Prof. Carol Dweck’s and Prof. Jo Boaler’s (Author of ‘The Elephant in the Classroom’) groundbreaking research and its implications for us all when it comes to learning to be great at maths and overcoming widely held beliefs about ‘ability’
See how, by changing the way we feel about maths, we open up to new ways of thinking and develop the resilience, curiosity and willingness to be challenged necessary to all great learning.
Take away practical, instantly applicable and highly effective practices into the classroom and change children immediately and put them on a new course of learning.

‘One of our EYFS Teachers has just attended this training and came back totally inspired and singing your praises. She said that she learnt more on this course than any course she has ever attended!’
C Magnocavallo Head of Maths, Chesham Preparatory School, Bucks
Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense!
Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
