How can we become a P4C school?

Our P4C School program is a structured 3 - 4 year progression designed to help you embed high quality P4C into your school's teaching and learning strategies, and into your school's ethos and values.  With tailored support packages though three levels of engagement with P4C, we recommend this program as the best way to maximise the impact of P4C and to make it self-sustaining for your school in the longer term.

P4C China is a  DialogueWorks accredited training center providing P4C training for the Greater China region.  We support every stage of the  P4C School program (Candidate School, 4Cs School and Model School stages).
