ITT Initial Teacher Training

SAPERE is providing an opportunity for those in Initial Teacher Education to

  • register your ITT provision as working in formal partnership with SAPERE, the national charity promoting P4C.

As a SAPERE Partner you will  

  • be able to offer a 4 hour introductory unit (which has credit towards SAPERE’s two day Level 1 course) and could be either integral or optional within your programme.
  • receive materials from SAPERE to support you in teaching this unit.

Students undertaking the introductory unit will

"The P4C module has been brilliantly received.  100% of students have evaluated it as either good or outstanding and all have made reference to how their thinking has been challenged":  Caroline Elbra-Ramsay, York St John College
