Expansive Education is an approach to teaching and learning that
develops life-long learners.

'I thought this was an excellent event...I think the format is exactly what people want and holding events like this in a school is another plus. Our members are crying out for opportunities to network with colleagues and be helped to develop the kind of confidence I described at the event in order to develop their curriculum in the way young people need rather than the way governments dictate.'
Brian Lightman, General Secretary, ASCL on our March 2015 Conference

"I would like to thank you personally for all your support and encouragement over the last couple of years. Getting involved in expansive education has been a great experience for me and I hope to work with the expansive education network again soon." London teacher - June 2014
