Expansive Education is an approach to teaching and learning that develops life-long learners. Central to this practice is Action Research. More than teacher enquiry skills, Action Research is ongoing CPD for teachers to develop positive attributes in learners, preparing individuals to meet the challenges of life and work.

Expansive Education: Teaching learners for the real world

'If we are going to transform outcomes for young people from all backgrounds then we need teachers who are both expert in their subject and have a bigger view of education. We need to help young people become powerful learners as well as excelling at maths or history. And we need all teachers to be hungry for new ideas and new methods. That's why I am a strong supporter of the Expansive Education Network and all that it is advocating and doing' 

James Westhead, Executive Director, Teach First

"It is important to convey that the expansive education approach is at the heart of learning – its what motivates students to learn and guides and sustains their learning." 
Professor Carol Dweck, Creator of Mindset Works
