"It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that modern methods of instruction have not entirely strangled the curiosity of inquiry."

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

"The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered."

Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980)
Developmental Psychologist

"In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted."

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
British philosopher and logician

"Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation and in cold weather becomes frozen... even so does inaction sap the vigor of the mind."
Leonardo da Vinci
(1452 - 1519)


Education & Training

Drawing on our vast resource of practice-based evidence, case studies, academic research, and a breadth of psychological theories and approaches, The Work Practice creates enlightening educational programmes in workshop format for client in-house delivery and for the general public.

Our Methodology
We facilitate and encourage our delegates to question existing practices and conventions  -  so that they can develop their own understandings, and construct new knowledge and practices that will benefit them and their organisations. The quotes on the left have shaped our education philosophy and methodology.
We use a coaching approach to workshop facilitation, whereby delegates are fully involved throughout, participating in experiments and demonstrations, thinking for themselves, and contributing to the shared learning process. Delegates leave with new awareness and insights that they can apply back at work and elsewhere.

Public Workshops
We continuously update our workshop contents, and you can find the latest details regarding workshop topics, locations and availability here. Don't miss out, places are always limited!

Bespoke Service
As well as offering public workshops, we specialise in creating bespoke educational programmes for in-house delivery to address targeted needs. You can read more about our bespoke design service and see some examples here.
