Education for liberation
A peer-led Learning Marathon for those who want to reimagine education for the future of learning.
Online - (Global)
5 hours per wk
Together we will create alternative futures for education, innovate our way around shortcomings, and cultivate a shared set of community values.
Join us to explore and act on your own big questions, for example: How might we share more wisdom between generations? What role does 'play' have in adolescent learning? How might I develop a unique pedagogy to offer in my youth work practice?
Is it for me?
Are you a life long learner wanting to pursue your curiosities? Are you a teacher, a parent, a youth worker, motivated to remove barriers to education?
Do you want to revolutionise the way we engage and inspire young minds? We'll power our responses to these questions by exploring them and taking action together.
Do it to
Be the driver of your own learning experience.
Build relationships and networks with other visionaries.
Be a changemaker - give yourself permission to discover the possibilities of a reformed education system.
Imani encourages those she journeys with to challenge the status quo. You can find her dreaming about what could be, and asking why not.
Imani facilitates conversations and courses encouraging people to think deeply about the causes of social problems and structures, that cause systems to behave the way they do. She has a particular passion that focuses on the empowerment of the next generation; children and young adults.
"Imani's good nature and keen sense of humour, makes her sessions inviting and welcoming!"

How do you approach diversity and inclusion?
We believe that placing peer-to-peer relationships at the heart of learning creates huge potential for a more inclusive approach to education. We also know that a very deliberate effort is required to deliver those benefits in reality. A top cited value point for Enrol Yourself participants is that they learnt alongside people they wouldn't otherwise have met and were able to exchange their perspectives, ideas, experiences and more.
We want to welcome and support anyone with a strong intention to take part in our programmes, and aim to ensure that your identity or background will not be a barrier. Whilst we don't have it all figured out yet, we are working on it.
What does the programme look like?
Over 6 months we will meet once a fortnight, on a Tuesday evening as a learning community, coupled with 'Power Up' sessions where we report back on our learning. Each person takes it in turn to collaborate and lead a session that helps us explore our learning questions. We pool our skills, experience and resources to support each other in our collective learning.
What does the application process look like?
The application process is simple. You can download more information at the bottom of this page, and feel free to reach out to Imani for an informal 1-2-1 chat. If this feels like something that speaks to you, then you can sign up via the application form. There is also a 10% discount for early bird applications. After the deadline Imani will find a time to speak with you, before offering a limited number of places.
How much does it cost?
Cost ranges from £750 - £1650 dependent on your current circumstances and finances. There are a small amount of bursaries available. If you are able, we encourage you to contribute to our higher tier. This makes it possible to offer these lower cost places to those with less income: and makes it possible for you to learn as part of a more diverse group. We are aware that this is a financially precarious moment for many, please reach out if you're stuck for funds, we’ll explore your options.
Think your organisation might be able to pay for you?
Great! Let Imani know you’re considering this. She can send you some information specifically targeted at employers.
Why is the Learning Marathon online?
There is power in connecting and building with others from different geographical perspectives. Taking part in the Learning Marathon online allows you to share ideas and collaborate with a global community of people.
