SAPERE provides training in philosophical enquiry and supports a growing network of P4C trainers and practitioners across the UK. SAPERE co-ordinates three levels of validated P4C training, INSET and support, conferences, projects, networking, research and resources.
SAPERE Introduction - Background - Aims & Development - Who We Are
Philosophy for Children / Communities aims to encourage children (or adults) to think critically, caringly, creatively and collaboratively. It helps teachers to build a 'community of enquiry' where participants create and enquire into their own questions, and 'learn how to learn' in the process.

P4C is most effective when it becomes part of a whole school approach to learning and the Level 1 course provides the introductory training to become a P4C teacher.
