4MAT: A Systematic Approach to Learning

Make your training investment count with 4MAT, one of the most widely used instructional models in the K-12 education market. Originally developed in the 1980s by Dr Bernice McCarthy, the 4MAT learning model recognises and caters for different learning styles across four distinct phases of the learning cycle.

By understanding learning styles and integrating strategies to support how the brain likes to learn, 4MAT is a proven model that meets the needs of all learners. This helps trainers and teachers create motivating and effective programs to engage and inspire. In addition to improved learner outcomes, 4MAT delivers greater ROI for all types of organisations.
