Following an initial gathering in London with all partners, the Talent 4 Roadshow has now travelled to three countries - Malta, Romania and Spain. In each we have delivered training to those facilitators who will themselves run T4 programmes later in 2013.

Extract from the Talent 4... Manual - TALENT AND IMAGINATION

Talent 4... makes no assumptions about whether or not learners have attended school or college. It operates from the assumption that learning takes place all the time, in all situations and all environments. Most of our learning is unconscious. This explains why in situations of great stress or high stakes, we are capable of doing far better than we expect.
