"This is more than a training programme. 
It's a process for those that want to go deeper into
themselves and push the boundaries of what their work can achieve. I would recommend it to all who work in schools.
It’s set the benchmark for what I want to achieve in my career; empowering individuals to take responsibility for their education, to know what they’ll be doing before entering the classroom, to discover the fullest possibility of what their lives can be. Co-regulation: it starts with me."
What Exactly is Human Hive Education?
Human Hive Education is an exciting and adaptive approach to teaching and learning; it's human-centredcollaborative and self-directed, putting psychosocial wellbeing at the heart of every educational experience.
The Human Hive Education programme trains you to make learning environments; 
safe, self- and co-regulating, welcoming and inclusive, learner led, and designed to be used successfully wherever learning is taking place around the globe.  
"I found the programme so worthwhile.
I love the way The Human Hive works; unimposing, welcoming and enlightening.

The training is a balance between theoretical and experiential learning, culminating in an event with The Hive team, where you will be sharing new activities with our students designed by you during the course of the week
