Rationale

LEGO® Education has been working with schools for more than 30 years. Its aim is to help practitioners to take a more progressive approach and to unlock their pupils’ interest in learning. LEGO® BuildToExpress (BTE) encourages pupils to express their thoughts and ideas symbolically, which is a more playful, creative and hands-on way of engaging pupils of all abilities. The method ensures a secure and non-judgemental process for solving problems, expressing personal feelings and breaking down barriers that can affect achievement in curriculum-based topics.

This course is £135 plus VAT, and is starting at 9am and finishing at 1pm.
