Support and consultancy

We support a wide range of organisations and collaborations through training, co-design, consultancy, organisational development and strategy development.

Areas of specialism include:

  • Creative learning approaches, including project-based and enquiry-based learning, understanding creativity, developing children and young people's ideas
  • Supporting organisations understand and develop the purpose, and often social impact, of their work
  • Progression, young leadership and motivation for students to teach themselves
  • Young person-led practice and approaches
  • Mapping, analysis, visualisation, and wading through data to come up with clear insights and recommendations.

A selection of current and recent projects is below.
