We facilitate philosophy lessons, workshops and events for children and adults of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience. 

Drawing on evidence-based pedagogy that is grounded in practical experience and extensive philosophical study, we devise the both the content and shape of our sessions with attention to the interests of particular communities and the schools, institutions and services that work with  them.

Thinking Space creates opportunities for people to benefit from philosophical conversation by working with the individuals and organisations that know them best. By serving schools, universities, charities, councils, museums, business, libraries, hospitals and community groups, we have helped thousands of people to think more critically and to and communicate more clearly.


Our taster sessions, training courses, modelling and mentoring help hundreds of teachers, academics, community workers and creatives to start using philosophical enquiry in their work every year.

Our bespoke facilitator training courses address client's specific  educational or professional context and are flexible in terms of content, duration and cost. 

We also offer a range of internationally recognised courses aimed at teachers which are  validated by SAPERE and Dialogue Works. For more information and bookings read more >


We produce a wide range of original. resources to support philosophical enquiry including  lesson plans and curricula for teachers, facilitator training materials and academic articles and talks.


Our resources illuminate ideas from the history of ideas and find the philosophy in everyday experience, popular culture and news.

Our projects are based on strong relationships with partners that provide the trust and time it takes to embed philosophical enquiry practices in their school, community or organisation.

Alongside facilitation, training and resources, our public philosophy projects incorporate advocacy, brokering, consultation, collaboration resource-writing and research designed  help partners get the best out of philosophical enquiry. From introducing philosophy across networks of schools, to transforming university teaching, we can help you realise more ambitious plans for philosophy.  To learn about previous projects, read more >
