Harnessing the power of psychology and neuroscience to enrich education

Introducing BrainCanDo

Ongoing developments in psychology and neuroscience are accelerating our understanding of the mechanisms and processes in our brains that bring about learning.

Passionate teaching professionals are keen to explore how this knowledge can be applied to improve educational practices and, ultimately, learning outcomes for adolescent students.

That's where we come in...

“At BrainCanDo we improve learning outcomes for adolescent students. That’s really the mission of BrainCanDo; to bring a new way of looking at education and evidence informed practices into our thinking as educationalists and help share the science that I think is really going to underpin our future teaching and learning.”

Julia Harrington, BrainCanDo Founder & CEO


Strong academic partnerships are central to our work at BrainCanDo.

Partnerships improve our understanding of new developments in the field of educational neuroscience, allowing us to establish a clear and strong scientific evidence base to inform and underpin recommended teaching practice.

We partner with leading neuroscientist and psychologists at the University of Reading and Goldsmiths, University of London to carry out exciting new research. Discover our latest key findings


You know your school and its community better than anyone; its strengths and triumphs as well as the aspects you’d like to improve.

We offer a range of bespoke services encompassing research, training and resources to support you in meeting any challenges that you are seeking to address within your school.

Harnessing evidence informed strategies and practices, we will work with you to design, implement and evaluate a specific intervention, programme or project that you have in place or are considering introducing.

Read about how we have successfully worked with a variety of schools on specific areas such as gratitude, character and resilience, sleep and wellbeing.


We provide training for students and staff, including CPD accredited inset workshops, training days and conferences.
