"Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another."
Nelson Mandela 1918 - 2013
For over two decades Independent Thinking has been working to bring the best out of young people and those who work with them, focussing on areas including thinking, learning, motivation, leadership and creativity.

We strive to inform, inspire and shamelessly entertain, because education is too important to be taken seriously.
And we are committed to being unlike any other organisation in our field.
This website shows you what we do, why we do it and who it is doing it.
All being well, it will encourage you to do it too.
Our written mission is:
'To enrich people's lives by changing the way they think - and so to change the world'.
