The portal has been set up to start conversations to support an individual’s learning journey.
The portal connects themes of wellbeing and learning and by making them visible offers opportunities for inquiry and reflection. It is through a process of active questioning that the portal encourages conversations through which learners can increasingly manage, make sense and take control of their own learning.
The downloadable guide is to support adult facilitators put the portal into practice.

What it means for the children, is that they now have the ability to apply and even synthesise ways of implementing the learning attributes (metacognitive tools) in all facets of their learning and socialisation.
Ducan Robers, Head of Little Green
Equipping kids have breathed new life into our school. We are on the journey for giving them the skills to navigate life, not a text book. The bespoke, knowledgeable, research-based approach of Equipping Kids allows us to do this; to find solutions but most importantly all be ourselves. There is no 'lunchbox' of tricks, just knowledgeable, passionate professionals who want to maximize the opportunities for every child to make a difference.

The impact has transformed the adults in school to see themselves as partners in learning rather than learning that is something that is done to children
Hannah Trickett, Head, Maple Cross
The methods used by equipping kids to gather tangible qualitative data and make visible the learning process have enabled staff and governors to value priorities that are 'hard to evidence' and as a result maintain sustained focus on longer term changes to ethos and culture in the school, such as a focus on developing growth mindsets and developing pupils as learners.
