Evidence shows that low self-esteem is directly related to early school leaving, truancy, depression, low academic achievement and also contributes to a poor work-life balance.

As the world's first remanufacturer of IT, Circular Computing’s mission is to change the way the world buys IT and create positive environmental, social and ethical impacts so we can all live in a better world with a brighter future.
Circular Computing have invested over €5 million in the world’s first purpose-built computer remanufacturing facility, that will extend the life of laptops by another 3 – 4 years. This circular business model is unique to Circular Computing. The company re-purchases these laptops every 3 years when they will re-join the remanufacturing process and be redeployed to other customers. In total, the company estimates three re-loop cycles and another nine years of useful life, which in turn creates enormous positive environmental, ethical and social impact. This is made possible due to the intensive 5-hour industrial remanufacturing and upgrade process that every Circular laptop undergoes, resulting in products that look and perform the same as new. They are backed with a 3-year advance replacement warranty, offering complete peace of mind.
Serious and committed about its plans, Circular Computing invests a percentage of its profits into high impact environmental and social initiatives in India and Africa. Working together with WeForest, a Belgian NGO, Circular Computing plants five trees for every laptop sold. This environmental and social commitment helps to mitigate climate change, create jobs and empower local communities to become more sustainable. Over 600Kgs of Co2 is sequestered by every laptop. This means Circular Computing laptops has a zero-carbon footprint for three years of use as well as having the original CO2 from OEM manufacturing reversed.
Firmly rooted in the circular economy and working exclusively with a network of partners who are all committed toward this shared vision, the company aims to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future.
Students create their own journey as they travel along the timeline hopping between coloured paths that represent six subjects: Science, Nature, History, Culture, Rights and Sports. Each ‘decade hub’ that they arrive at offers a number of topics and attached to each of these there is a selection of Challenges, from which the student chooses one.
The Challenges are focused on the seven key learning and life skills that Curiosity is built around: literacy, numeracy, communication, visualisation, experimentation, research and memory.

Students record information on their greatest achievements, key experiences, enriching hobbies and special interests to their online CV+ portfolio, keeping information organised and safe in one place to reduce stress at application time for both students and teachers. Students can upload video, files, weblinks and testimonials as well as text and imagery to create online articles ('posts') which can be converted to PDF and automatically laid out like a magazine article. Alternatively, posts can be shared by weblink to cover letters, UCAS applications, email, social media- anywhere! This use of different media types caters for students with practical interests, as well as those confident with writing, and showcases the student's content like nothing else can. Content is tagged with the relevant skills to create an organised database of content by skill, as well as educate on the link between the individual and their personal skills as valuable for employability. Confidence and pride palpably grows in the classroom with CV+ as students tackle their fears around applications and the world of work.

Built to slot in seamlessly to the classroom environment, these learning programmes enable children and adults alike to embrace skills such as maths, literacy, communication, problem solving and so much more.
The sessions also cover those crucial life skills like learning how to lose. So every route taken is a learning opportunity, and each individual comes away with their own positive learning experience.
We use traditional style games, so board games and card games, to develop, nurture and challenge people to encourage them to apply the learning they have received, whether in the school or other educational establishment, and to find the joy in thinking for fun.
The range of games that we use numbers several hundred and come from companies large and small from across the world. The thing they have in common, they work at achieving the above.
We will make people, both adults and children, laugh, think, compete, consider, express, concentrate, debate and much much more.
What we don’t do? We are not here to teach children how to do long multiplication or how to do algebra for example, we are here to provide games and activities that allow children to understand clearly how to apply skills, such as long multiplication or Algebra, they have to solve problems, to do well in a game and to simply enjoy this in the company of others within a friendly environment.
As we like to say at Independent Thinking, 25 years old this year, we use our words.
Whether it’s through speaking to children, students, teachers, school leaders and more the world over, or through our award-winning books and resources, we aim to use those words to reassure educators everywhere that there is always another way.
No matter what they tell you.
Independent Thinking is unique in a number of ways, especially in our collaboration with Crown House Publishing to create the Independent Thinking Press. Through this cooperation, we bring into print the words of some of the UK’s most inspiring and entertaining educational speakers, thinkers, innovators, practitioners and, yes, let’s use that word, mavericks.
It’s not our job to tell you what to do – the clue’s in the name – but rather to take your brain for a walk and to help you see yourself, them, education and the world with new eyes, new enthusiasm and new possibilities.
That way education moves forward and does so with people, not data, at its heart.
I do hope you enjoy our words, however you come across them.
We can’t do it without you.
Ian Gilbert, Founder of Independent Thinking Ltd.
