At BrainCanDo we improve learning outcomes for adolescent students.
Under the expert guidance of our Director of Research, Dr Amy Fancourt, we bring clarity, research rigour and high standards of excellence to the rapidly emerging and often misunderstood field of educational neuroscience.
We work primarily with educational professionals, collaborating with them to use neuroscientific evidence-based research to improve educational practice. We do this during the critical period of adolescence when the brain is most primed for growth and development.
Increasingly, schools opt for our bespoke consultancy services. They want to apply our knowledge about psychology and neuroscience within their own educational contexts in order to enhance student wellbeing and outcomes; to inform decision making or to implement key changes that support the entire school community or particular year groups.
