ABOUT UNLEASH LEARNING
Professional development that stays with you
Teaching you to make learning sticky for others.
Here’s the deal
Short-term professional development has its place.
But magic happens when a common system is unleashed throughout an entire learning community.
Learning that sticks for good
We’re living in an unpredictable world. Pandemics may bring pressure. Workshop programs might change. Inclusion might be overlooked. Teachers come and go.
What never changes is the need to communicate content in a way that sticks – and sparks meaningful behavioural change.
Whether you’re corporate or in the classroom, your team needs outcomes despite disruption.
That’s where we come in
Unleash Learning helps you share learning in a way that sticks for everyone.
Unlike short-term professional learning, we help you create embedded, systematic, long-lasting change so that you can make learning stick for others for years to come.
Unleash Learning for:
A system-wide approach based on deep-seated values
We believe in…
Impact that endures
Long lasting change doesn’t happen overnight. This is about building a powerful team who’s in it for the long haul. Deeply embedding an approach to learning across your whole organisation. Learning that sticks for good.
Innovation over compliance
If you train a trainer, you create compliance. But if you embed a system, you empower your people. Our approach helps teams become flexible, creative and resilient in the face of change. This approach helps your team ensure learning sticks, for years to come.
We are not “training” individuals. We’re creating communities of change. It’s about bringing people together to learn together. The culture seeps into your staff circle and soaks into your system – creating a powerful force for learning success. The result is collective momentum that lasts.
Equity and inclusion
When we say we make learning stick for everyone, we mean EVERYONE. That’s why equity and inclusion are woven into everything we do. We help our clients create learning cultures that affirm diversity and support inclusion, everywhere.
Words are powerful. How we communicate is just as important as what we have to say. That’s why we teach and model a style of communication that is mindful of others. It’s about ensuring our words build bridges of understanding – creating connection to make learning stick.
Committing to our values
We always stick to our values. By having processes that revisit and reconnect us to what we believe in, we know our values—and why they matter.

Leaning into the research
We’ve come a long way from the days of chalkboards and overhead projectors. People have dedicated their lives to understanding how humans learn – and we are benefiting from their research.
The evidence is clear. Good education doesn’t happen by accident. Intentional and planned-for learning engagement is what makes learning stick.
Putting it to work
And there are specific actions educators and learners need to take to make it happen. The learning actions you’ll get from this program are informed by leading research in:
- Education of Literacy
- The psychology of learning
- Inter-cultural education
- Child and adolescent development.
