The Philosophical Educator: Advancing Theory and Practice of P4C Level 3

    Explore the philosophical foundations of P4C and become an advanced facilitator

    Do you have experience of leading P4C in your school? Do you want to understand the philosophy behind P4C to progress further? Are you considering becoming a SAPERE trainer?

    This three-day residential course is designed for educators who have been practising P4C regularly for at least two years, who want to develop a deep understanding of the philosophy behind P4C, and who may want to become SAPERE trainers. You will:

    • Engage critically with the educational and philosophical perspectives that underpin P4C
    • Develop a deep understanding of these theoretical foundations of P4C and understand how to link these to advanced P4C practice
    • Develop the understanding of P4C necessary to embark on the SAPERE trainer pathway 

    The course focuses on questions and concepts in these broad areas of philosophical thinking:

    • Language and learning
    • Knowledge and belief in P4C
    • Ethics and politics in and of P4C
    • Childhood and P4C
    • Experience and the aesthetic response in P4C

    Participants must have completed the Level 2B course, including the course report, and have practised P4C regularly for at least two years.

    Completion of the Level 3 course and post-course assignment will qualify you for a SAPERE P4C Advanced Facilitator Certificate.

    Successful completion of the Level 3 course allows you to apply for the SAPERE trainer pathway.

    The course for the three-day course is £750, including accommodation and catering. Details of the next Level 3 Course will be posted below once finalised.
