Richard Gore - Trainer Profile
As a young adult I studied French and Spanish and lived and worked abroad teaching English in France, Spain and Argentina. On my return to the UK I worked in secondary schools in Bradford and Cambridge supporting the inclusion and progression in school of pupils with English as an additional language. I then worked for Oldham LEA for nearly 20 years, the final 8 years as a school improvement adviser with a specific focus on ethnic minority achievement and promoting cultural diversity and community cohesion. As part of this role I had lead responsibility for an extensive philosophy for children and communities project for Oldham Council.. The project worked with both primary and secondary schools; but also in a wide range of youth, community and voluntary settings including housing associations and Sure Start centres. A key aspect of the project was adapting the P4C approach to work in these settings and as a vehicle for interfaith and intercultural understanding and dialogue. Since January 2012 I have been a freelance P4C trainer and consultant and have worked on the SAPERE Going for Gold programme as well as on two national projects: a training and research project funded by the Education Endowment Fund; and the Open Futures Project funded by the Helen Hamlyn Foundation. I am currently working with others in establishing the Greater Manchester Philosophy for Children hub to support the development of P4C across schools in the Greater Manchester area.
