Product description

Brick-by Brick® Training Programme

Accessing this professional training programme will allow you to become a registered Brick Club facilitator who can offer children positive, meaningful social experiences in an understanding, playful and accepting environment.

Brick Club (as it’s known to children) supports its members to collaborate, communicate, problem-solve and share fun experiences all through collaborative LEGO® play.

Play Included’s Brick-by-Brick programme is the ONLY programme in the field of LEGO based therapy that is offically endorsed by the LEGO Foundation.

Once you have completed Level 1  online training with Play Included, you can progress this level 2 face to face workshop with our highly experienced and Accredited Play Therapist and trainer at The Play Therapies Centre.

At The Play Therapies Centre we work in partnership with Dr Gina Gomez de la Cuesta (Clinical Psychologist & co author of the Lego based therapy manual) and Dr Eli Brett (Education Psychologist ) from Play Included in Cambridge.

Working with the LEGO Foundation and international experts.

Accessing both level one and two will allow you to become a registered Brick -by – Brick® Facilitator and you can apply to be listed on Play Included’s register of Facilitators coming to their website soon.


Level ONE Brick by Brick ® online training (approximately 9 hours) must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to this level TWO face to face workshop.

It is most important that Brick Clubs are safe and enjoyable spaces for children and young people. As such, the prerequisites for attending our training include:-

-You are a registered and recognised health or education professional (e.g. teacher, speech and language therapist, psychologist, play therapist, higher level teaching assistant etc.) with experience of working with children and young people.

-You are able to deliver Brick Clubs in a recognised organisation that routinely provides support, care, educational or medical provision to children and young people (e.g. school, educational centre or health service). A recognised organisation is an Education, Health, or Care provider that has its own complaints and safeguarding policy.

-You agree to abide by Play Included Code of Conduct, Privacy Policy, Play Included Terms & Conditions and the LEGO Foundation’s Safeguarding policies.
