The Centre for Self Managed Learning was established originally to take forward the approach with organisations. It was only 15 years ago that we started work with young people. The Centre and its sister social enterprise company, Strategic Developments International, continue to further the SML approach and are regularly in demand to run programmes.

We like readers to be aware that this work with young people is based on almost 40 years of significant experience and research with thousands of leaders and managers throughout the world. Our work continues currently with providing senior leadership development for organisations as diverse as St Georges University of London and the BBC. We are also in our fourth year of a consortium programme for primary school heads in Hertfordshire.

Ian Cunningham has recenty been running a Self Managed Learning programme for senior coaches at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. As part of the programme two coaches visited the College to get ideas for working with their young people.
