Our mission is to help educators and educational leaders around the world foster metacognition and develop self-regulated learning. We specialise in secondary education and focus on those working with students aged 11-16.

What We Offer


Self-regulated learning involves students taking greater control of their learning-processes whilst exercising increased autonomy and independence in their approach to learning. Metacognition is the cognitive aspect of self-regulated learning; sometimes defined as 'thinking about thinking', metacognition is the awareness and understanding of thought and thinking processes.


In practice both metacognition and self-regulated learning involve students engaging in a continuous cycle of planning, monitoring, evaluating and regulating their approaches to learning and problem-solving.
