Planning Learning Spaces

For schools that want to improve their learning environments, but need support with the process of change, help is at hand from the team behind the best-selling book Planning Learning Spaces

Our project approach

The Planning Learning Spaces Design Framework helps schools to translate their educational vision into learning space design principles. Schools are guided through a reflective process, building the link between curriculum and design through a structured framework. We work with lead staff and other appropriate stakeholders through a series of workshops, which can be delivered online or in person.

Target Audience

The process builds consensus throughout the teaching staff and the wider school community to support sustained change, empowering schools to be creators of a new, ongoing relationship between pedagogy and space.

The project is ideal for schools wanting to refurbish existing learning environments or design new spaces that actively support their learning goals.
