The Hope Centre is the name of our specialist educational provision. It is based in a purpose-built and well resourced building in North West London.
Training in Feuerstein's renowned Instrumental Enrichment training programme will enable participants to teach their students 'to learn how to learn' and improve their thinking skills. This approach is highly associated with the best practices in teaching, leading to successful learning and increased motivation of students.
The course is suitable for psychologists, teachers, SENCOs, speech and language therapists and parents who work with children aged nine and over, adolescents and young adults.

The Hope Centre provides holistic, multi-disciplinary assessments and runs intervention programmes, all designed to meet each student’s needs. Our highly experienced team is made up of teachers, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and educational psychologists. They work together to identify the student’s needs and to devise and monitor joint targets. This approach gives parents, as well as other professionals, a comprehensive picture of the child which helps ensure that every student makes the best possible progress.
The Hope Centre specialises in developing children’s thinking skills. All our teachers and therapists are trained in specialist approaches, designed to help children become confident and independent learners. This work is based on a unique methodology devised by Professor Reuven Feuerstein and includes the structured programmes he developed. It also uses programmes which have evolved from Feuerstein’s pioneering work.
At the Hope Centre, every student is an active participant in the learning process. We help each child to become more consciously aware of their own thinking processes. This is,so that he/she will be better equipped to adjust and refine those processes, which will lead to more efficient and flexible thinking.
With us, students develop fundamental cognitive skills such as how to stay focussed, plan, compare and prioritise. These skills are essential for studying subjects that are part of the curriculum as well as for everyday life.
