The Learning Power Approach

The Learning Power Approach (LPA) is an umbrella term for an emerging school of thought about teaching and learning. Deriving from research and development groups working independently in Australia, the UK and the US, the LPA shows teachers how to adjust small aspects of the nitty-gritty of their teaching in order to achieve two aims:

– Better results

– And the development of confident, independent learners

This website is invitation to forward-thinking, reflective practitioners to engage in the LPA – to think deeply about their practice, feel inspired to plan ways to engage, motivate and challenge their learners and to re-connect with their deeper purpose of becoming a teacher.
