What is school transformation? 

Our schools were created in a world that looks very different to the one we inhabit today.  Over the past 30 years, technology has fundamentally changed how we work, live and learn. Schools must transform to better prepare students to navigate this increasingly complex world. This transformation is about more than just improving classroom practice - it’s about rethinking and reshaping every aspect of school life. 


What are the 4Cs?

The 4Cs of school transformation are Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Reflection. These are the uniquely human skills that must be nurtured in order to thrive in the modern workplace and beyond. With the 4Cs approach, students develop greater capacities for grit, resilience, empathy, altruism and the ability to think and work with others.


Years transforming schools

Our processes have been developed and evaluated within schools over the last seven years. We continue to adapt, reflect and grow. 



4c schools

More than 45 schools across all sectors have already embraced the 4Cs and continue to work with us to deepen their practice. Watch the story of our journey and impact with Casula Public School.




years experience

We are internationally recognised experts in pedagogy and school transformation. Combined, the 4Cs team have over 100+ years experience working in schools as teachers, leaders, consultants, curriculum and assessment designers and researchers.



Our professional learning modules are designed to meet the needs of individual schools. We support teachers and leaders to develop 4C in their own environments, working across schools in all sectors and age groups.  Any school that understands that schools must meet the 21st Century needs of students will benefit from adopting a 4C approach.   


Follow up 

The 4Cs are an ongoing, holistic approach to teaching and learning.  We develop long-term partnerships with schools, providing follow-up support and guidance to participants.  We connect 4Cs educators to a network of peers, creating the space for them to share, reflect on and develop their practice. When working with us, schools become part of a growing family that’s driven to improve learning for all students.   



We know that a single day of professional learning just isn't enough. Classroom mentors allow educators to gain a better understanding of how different teaching methods are meant to look, sound and feel. Mentors help educators reflect on their experiences, leading to a deeper understanding of the method. 



ACEL "Leading Change program" 

In partnership with the Australian Council for Educational Leaders, we offer an intensive program that provides leaders with the confidence, knowledge and skills to take their school on journeys of transformation.





Our book
