Increasing your learner’s engagement and retention through LEGO® activities

Limited Spaces

Using LEGO® in learning has become very popular recently… in fact there are whole communities based around the concept.  But how do you know it’s right for you and your learners / clients? Which type of Lego® activity should you use? And will you be taken seriously as a Trainer, Facilitator or Coach if you suggest such a thing?

How does the course works?

  • In this interactive online course, you’ll be signing up to a cohort, which means we’ll all be starting the course on a set date.

What others have to say...

“Hands up if you think you are creative?' That is a question that usually leads to me putting my hands firmly on the ground! But, after a session with Nikie Forster of Curious Lighthouse, I was thinking completely differently........ Enlightening and motivating, I am now kidding myself I can be a NASA Astronaut, have a new desk buddy called 'Daisy Duck' and am the proud owner of this beautiful lighthouse... Thank you Nikie for such an informative session.”

Laura Macarthy MICB - Certified Bookkeeper & Director at Now Bookkeeping Ltd

“Nikie created a great day packed full of ideas, taught my team how dopamine makes the difference in learning and we left with a shopping list and inspired and reassured that what we were already doing was value add coupled with some ideas to make them even better. From before the day to after she demonstrated how creativity engages and lands learning.”

Natalie Rogers - Head of Talent, Learning & Development at Greencore

“Nike is passionate about people development and played a significant role in building my skills and confidence, enabling me to take the next step with my career.
