Is This You?

Are you and your learning community open to new and innovative approaches? Do you value and care about teaching & learning excellence and believe it can change the course of a student’s life for the better?

Does your school have content they love and programs and strategies they use – yet, your school still struggles to ensure learning sticks for everyone?

Then Unleash Learning™ is for You

At it’s heart, Unleash Learning believes that learning, when it sticks, is unleashed and can transform a student’s life and help our world get better. And that’s why we’re all about helping you and your learning community unleash learning for every student.

What The Research Says?

The evidence is clear. Intentional and planned for engagement is what makes learning stick, and there are specific actions teachers and students need to be doing that helps make this happen. Those actions are informed by the research in Education, Literacy, Neuroscience, Multicultural Education, Child and Adolescent Development and Positive Psychology.

The Unleash Learning™ System

The Unleash Learning™ System turns the research into 6 key action-areas that teachers and students need to be systematically doing to unlock consistent and effective teaching, boost student engagement and unleash learning for everyone.

The Unleash Learning™ System has been developed into sessions, programs, certifications and plans so you can put this innovative system into school-wide action. It works together with the programs, content and strategies your school already has in place to help you make learning stick and unleash learning in every subject, for every student.

Create a Movement That Lasts

Here’s the deal.  Short term professional development doesn’t work. But when a system, common language and a shared understanding around high quality teaching & learning is embedded throughout a school, magic happens!

That’s why our Unleash Learning™ programs have been developed to make that happen.  Not only will you and your school learn how to implement and use the Unleash Learning™ System, but our programs help you create a self-sustaining and self-organising teaching & learning powerhouse that lasts for years to come.

I feel that this has been an invaluable PD program for me and my staff. I have seen so many of the strategies implemented and the discussion around unleashing learning has given me confidence that the program will make a real difference to the students in my school.

I would encourage any school that is working on improving student engagement as a means to improving learning to seek Unleash Learning’s support. Their sessions are interesting, engaging and very applicable in the classroom the very next day.
