Welcome to 21st Century Learners
On this site you will find details of professional development and support for schools in Philosophy for Children, Dialogue-Based Learning (4Cs Dialogue) and Peer Tutoring (in association with UFA). These are three specific aspects of a wider vision for Dialogic Education which seeks to enhance children's capacity to gain qualification, but also to increase their opportunities to explore their culture and to make unique contributions to their communities by developing their ability to engage in dialogue. All the approaches are underpinned by evidence of impact.
21st Century Learners is a provider of Sapere validated Level 1 training in Philosophy for Children, Colleges and Communities (P4C). P4C helps children to develop personally and academically and can have a profound effect on teaching and learning. It provides a great foundation for a Dialogic Education. Taster sessions and support of classroom practice are also available. Learn more.
Dialogue is an essential medium for learning, but is also a profoundly important educational outcome in its own right. 21st Century Learners uses the 4Cs framework, based on the work of Professor Matthew Lipman, to support schools to develop and work towards a shared vision of quality dialogue and to apply this to a range of educational outcomes including the mastery of core concepts across the curriculum.

21st Century Learners is proud to be associated with the University of the First Age (UFA) and can provide Peer Tutoring programmes for primary and secondary schools. UFA's programmes have been demonstrated to have a significant impact on learning over many years, and are a great way to allow children to make a valuable contribution to their school. Learn more.
