Introducing your learners to the delights of learning with Lego®

If you’re thinking of using LEGO® in your sessions, you might also have thought about how your learners might react to you suddenly producing what is essentially a kid’s toy for them to use.

Most people take to LEGO® quickly and without hesitation, but for others, you might need to acclimatise them to the concept that there are no right or wrong answers, and that they can be a great prop for broadening their answers in sessions.  So, if you’re a Trainer, Facilitator or Coach, and are looking to increase the creativity of your sessions, LEGO® is a great resource to use.

  • Introducing your learners to LEGO®

Instructor Bio

Nikie Forster

You might not think early roles in radio, interior design and DIY sound like the most convincing career choices for someone who has since spent over two decades as a Learning and Development professional! But all three of these roles gave me some great opportunities to learn about people, hone my training, and facilitation skills, and craft my own path in a career I love. Having gained many professional qualifications and experience in public and private sector L&D roles, I founded Curious Lighthouse Learning Consultancy Ltd in early 2016, where I specialises in increasing competence and confidence in Line Managers and Trainers to enhance their performance, whether they are at the very start of their journey or experienced professionals. ​​ I love that my role allows me to work with all types of companies from small growing companies to larger established corporates, and from local charities to the NHS Trusts. ​I'm passionate about using creative learning methods which, as well as increasing engagement in the sessions, ensures better retention of information and quicker transfer of skills back into the workplace. (And yes, I do use LEGO® in many of the my sessions!!) ​​​Curious Lighthouse is based in Hampshire and mainly serves the south coast.


“Attended a fantastic session this morning on creative training ideas with the inspiring Nikie Forster of Curious Lighthouse. Sessions like these rekindle my love of teaching and remind me why I do it! Nikie can make any topic fun, thought-provoking and effective, at any level of a corporation. Invest in your people and get her involved!”

Sara Ellul - Business Lecturer

“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 was absolutely brilliant - very inclusive and highly supportive of all participants across a range of abilities. Thank you Nikie for sharing this very useful learning with us! ”
