Malcolm Nicolson speaking at The DIF conference at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation on 16 November 2016. What is the future of learning? Can we re-frame education in terms of skills, attitudes and experiences? How do we address the social and emotional needs of students?

Our goal is to support schools and organisations through bespoke services, to help improve teaching and learning.


Erimus is the motto of Middlesbrough, a proud industrial town in the north east of England. It means 'we will be'. This phrase encompasses improvement, resilience, optimism, hope, bouncing back - in other words a growth mindset - a set of skills and attributes that we can help schools and organisations to develop with young people as they grow personally and within local and global communities.
