Connect better than you ever have before while discovering the learner they were born to be!
3 simple tools that will identify your child’s preferred way of learning in a fun, hassle free way.
When you have a proven way to understand how your child learns— like a highly experienced trained educator would— you can easily introduce educational experiences that your child will be enthusiastic about!
Like getting the most informative educational assessment without having to pay £100s for it, sit on a waitlist for months, or go down the negative rabbit hole of 'what is wrong with my child?' NOTHING! There is nothing wrong with your child...
Let's reduce your child’s anxiety around learning, and introduce educational experiences that will get your child wanting to go back to school. Break the cycle of school refusal!
Raise your hand if you have been here:
You’ve got excited about a new fun, creative way to get your child learning English and Maths...and they don’t engage.
You’ve booked them onto a new online creative class with an inspiring mentor...and they don’t want to go after the first session.
You think you’ve discovered their passion (because they’ve shown a bit of interest in something) and you get excited and try to show you believe in them...and they tell you ‘nah I’m not really interested in that anymore’.
Being a parent of a child who isn't interested in their education is not easy
Between trying to get them off their screens to do their homework and getting them to school on time in the first place you can end up feeling frustrated and downright desperate at times.
With everyone else putting on a 'brave face' at the school gates, you feel totally alone, and at your worst a failure.
Why can't your child learn like everyone else? Why are they so disengaged? Why do they suffer from school anxiety? Why can't they just get on with it so you don't have to spend your time in the 'struggle'?
You feel so busy trying to get them to do their boring homework so they don’t fall behind that you’ve forgotten about that vision you had for your family to learn through their passions and connect with their true purpose in life.
I want you to know I get you!
It wasn’t until I started focusing on getting children to learn from the inside out that I started to see results. We’re not just talking about children doing their homework or getting better academic success. We’re talking total transformation - from parents having to push, pull, drag, and squeeze their children to learn…
To them stepping back and seeing their children step forward to take ownership over their success.
So what if you could get clarity around why your child is not engaging in learning how you believe they can and then take 3 simple steps to re-engage them?
Imagine if you had the keys to unlock your child’s truest potential
Relax knowing that there is no falling behind because you are taking the right action so your child has gone from being ‘fine to flying’
Feel confident that your child is developing the exact skillset and mindset they need to grow their natural born talent AND achieve academic success
Be inspired by how often your child is proud of what they are doing and wants to share with you what they’ve been working on independently
Carve out time for yourself to reconnect with your own passions - because now you are not arguing over doing their homework (or worse actually doing it for them) you have time to do something you love too. Passion-led learning is the BEST!
Realign your vision for your family with the educational strategy that works for you - now the pressure is off you can see the opportunities ahead. No more old school thinking in your family!
Get ready to celebrate the wins that are coming your way.
The FASTEST and EASIEST way to get your child engaging in learning - in school and out!
The Lights On® Switch Kit offers just the right amount of structure for you to learn how to spark your child’s intrinsic motivation and know the exact conversations to have to make their learning purposeful so they go on to autograph their work with excellence!

Get ready to help your child grow a life-long love of ‘lights on’ learning!
Hi, I'm Julia Black
Creator of the transformative framework Lights On®, master neurocoach, NCPTA Gold Star Award Winner, and most importantly, Parent.
My vision was to empower children of every age to tune into their strengths, purpose, and create a culture of learning that extends beyond the classroom.
I’ve worked with 1000s of learners over the past 14 years and my superpower is seeing the brilliance in others before they even know what they are good at.
I’ve analysed what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to getting children to take ownership of their learning.
I’ve made it easy for ordinary parents, with no educational training to reawaken the love of learning in their children from the inside out. And I want to help you, too!
Inside the Lights On® Switch Kit you will have unlimited access to:

12 Strategies To Get Your Child Passionate About Learning
Having tips that work is always useful - so we asked some of our Lights On parents to share their game changer strategies on how they used our tools to move their children from being bored, disengaged and switch off into passionate, hungry inspired learners.
Value - inspiration from others is always priceless
What parents say about us
Julia, thank you! Your insight is really opening my eyes, it makes so much sense, and I'm really excited to see what is possible.
WATCH IN AWE AS YOU BEGIN TO SWITCH YOUR CHILD ONTO LEARNING
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any experience in education or think you can’t do this...we’re going to show you - YOU CAN!
I’ve taken the exact steps I’ve used on 1000s of children to ‘assess’ them as learners - without them even realising - and made it easy for you to have success.
Everything you need to know to switch your child back on to learning is provided so any parent can achieve success.
We know it works...for all kinds of children, neurodiverse, neurotypical, child, teenager (or adult) because it’s based on brain-science and 10000s of hours of hands on practical application...and parent after parent inside my community is proving that where the professionals have failed to switch their kids back on to learning, THEY are succeeding!
Lights On® Learning is designed to work with the educational system, not against it!
The culture of learning you begin to create using the Switch Kit will extend into EVERY area of your child's life.
Because wonder and discovery begin by connecting the heart and the brain, you will see your child gravitate towards activities, interests, and peers that support their love of learning for a lifetime.
You will be able to explore your child's learning with the same insight as a highly experienced trained educator, and watch in amazement as your child's engagement and capabilities grow beyond what you thought possible.
With inside-out learning, there's never a problem with your child… Just an opportunity to be explored!
It only takes one person to spark a lifelong love of learning for your child...
...Will it be you?
How do I know Lights On® learning is for me?
If you are a parent who is fed up and feeling overwhelmed by your child refusing to engage in their school or home learning then this Switch Kit is designed for you. It’s for any parent who wants to understand their child as a learner, through the lens of an educationalist, so they can make the right choices and know how to get them learning to their truest potential.
Is it worth the cost?
It’s £27 - but is priceless. What would you pay to see your child light up again because you now know how to switch them back on to learning? What would you give to have insight into your child that only professionals normally have? So yes - it is worth the £27 - as this is one of my most effective tools when it comes to switching children back on to learning. Take Ollie, age 13, he had over 10000 hours in the school system with lots of special education needs support and still he felt a failure. Within 5 minutes using the tool I share with you I knew he was a visual learner with a natural born talent for digital creation. No-one else had ever seen his superpower like I did. That’s what you are buying - a fast-track to seeing your child’s superpower through my lens.
How is it delivered?
There are short video trainings within an online portal, which will take you less than half hour to watch. We also have PDFs for you to download. We’ve made it easy for you to consume the knowledge so you can spend your time putting the tools and activities into action. Action takers get success. Consumers stay stuck.
How soon will I be able to get started?
As soon as you sign up you’ll create a login and password (make a note of it!) and you’ll receive an email to your inbox delivering you the login information. If you haven’t heard from us within 15 minutes reach out to us at [email protected] We’ll get you sorted.
What is your returns policy?
We don’t have one for this programme but we do have a guarantee that if you have taken action and are not getting success then you can reach out for some sparkie support via email and we’ll help you identify what’s getting in the way.
Wow.... I have learned so much from this one video. Julia, you are an amazing woman and your passion to help not only children, but all learners is incredible.
Your video is very informative as well as very professional.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and helping so many people around the world to find out what they are truly passionate about and giving them the confidence to follow their dreams.
Your training has given me the confidence to shake off the last vestiges of a 'school' mindset. I have truly been able, this last couple of weeks, to celebrate my children's creativity without 'secretly' (although we both know I'd be communicating it subconsciously) worrying about their academic achievements. They are all creative, passionate, motivated people with their own unique talents and I have finally been able to relax and let them do Their Thing, unhindered by unspoken 'shoulds'.
finding your resources online has given me hope that I can help my nine-year-old-girl change her mindset and become an active and engaged learner
Julia Black, hats off to you and everyone in this community. You have really started a... well... a revolution with this LOA of yours. In a very short time with you this has really been the last missing link in our kids' growth, learning and education. Thanks to you and everyone else here who are making this possible. Big ❤️ and hugs. 😄
I finished creating the Learning Carousel Room for my 7 & 9 yr old girls and they loved it! .... Thanks so much for this fun idea of adding inspiration to learning in our home. Really hope it helps spark some passion in my girls!
It feels like the old model of education isn't working on so many levels and I'd like to think I can be part of a community that is creating change. Explorium gives me hope that we can do much better than what's on offer at the moment!
I'm only at the very start of the course and know I have a lot to learn, I've had a definite shift in perspective already. I can't thank you enough for your incredible insight, for giving me your valuable time, and for sharing your inspirational energy.
Julia Black, oh my gosh you are my new favorite person and I can't wait to dive deep into ALL of this! What you have put together is AMAZING and I am only 15 minutes into finding you. 👊 I teach a conscious parenting + positive psychology formula to help parents with ADHD kids- who are sadly only seeing them through a distorted socially conditioned lens 😔 Thank you for daring greatly and sharing your gifts and vulnerability with us to support our kiddos. I am IN and have no doubt I will be incorporating this into my coaching! 🎉🙌❤️
Thank you for introducing me to lights on! It's just what I needed for our next step.
I would like to work on getting my Asd son engaging with us for my next step.
Small steps. Xx
Being involved in the jam has unleashed a part of me that I didn't know existed. I love a challenge. This side of me hasn’t been exercised for a long time, if ever. Thank you so much Julia and Corinne for your passion and bringing it to others. ❤️🌈🙏
Our day has been non stop, started with the kids coming to me with ideas of what they wanted to do.
So no time for the learning carousel today.
I have totally realised how standing back and allowing the kids to lead the way is much nicer way to go.
I have been here to mentor them though their ideas and encourage them to keep going or advise them on another way when it wasn't working.
It has been a really eye opening day for me today.
And for the children too especially my 12 year old boy who actually cant believe that this is our way of learning now and not the stressful school work that we both hated doing.
When Stanely said to me today mum would you like to see this I am really proud of it my heart burst with joy!!
I am so delighted to have found a clan of people who believe the best way for kids to learn is through their passions, and who can guide me to develop my kids growth mindset.
It’s a Bold Brave and Brilliantly Fun way to learn and live: it’s passion driven and the depths with which I see my daughter learning while doing what she loves doing is remarkable. It’s Liberating for both of us! Explorium taught my husband and I not only how to approach our children’s education but also how to create a wonder based inquisitive learning culture at home where we are learning alongside our children! I wish for all parents and children to experience through Explorium how enthralling and how stress-free the meaningful 21st century education can be!
A true strength of Explorium is its community that encourages and cheerleads our learning journey with honest feedbacks and insights!
I am grateful for the Lights On community of people and well of experience. I knew I wanted my son’s lights to stay on as he became school aged, but I found it lonely and difficult to trust my instincts and trust my son’s unique learning journey as we embarked on homeschooling together. Joining Lights On has given me a roadmap for being brave and engaged and a community of people to support and challenge both me and my son.
The Vision, Experience, Knowledge Expertise and Passion of Julia & Corinne, the Support of the Academy, its online course and other parents is absolutely what I had been desperately crying out for for a long while now to give me the courage to put into action the beliefs I've had for many years about the right way to support our children in learning both at home and in school. Having seen and knowing the approach to education and parenting through the ancient science/philosophy/psychology of yogic/Eastern traditions and also other child led innovative approaches to learning I've come across, as well as trying to heal my own trauma experienced at the hands of our traditionally imposed parenting attitudes and schooling agendas, it has always been my dream to give my son a holistic experience of learning and life, the Lights On Mums is the way forward. The Academy content is detailed, thorough, clear and you are led step by step with support every step of the way. I can't recommend it enough as either an alternative to schooling or to be used side by side to empower your child to be more self motivated, confident and resilient. It has challenged me especially to step up completely as a parent to be 100% present, connected engaged as every parent deep in their heart knows they really should, in fact really must do if we are to ease the suffering we constantly see around us in the World. The fact is our childhood experiences make us who we are. We as parents are responsible, totally responsible and if we make that choice to be a parent we need to own it, no excuses, we all need to see it as the most important 'learning' we do and value it as the most important life experience we ever have.
Essie says Lights On Learning is a very fun way to explore my inner creativity and passions, it also makes learning fun and energising.
His own words typed himself on the computer as he's teaching himself to type.
I am grateful to have found the Lights on community. It is early days for our family, however we are already seeing improvements. Julia, Corinne and the team stretch the whole family to reach their potential, change views for the better and encourage engagement as a family and in life.
When you know you are searching, even unsure of the actual question, but there is something that resides in you. Knowing your children’s learning is being somehow thowrted by the traditional education system and feeling at a lost to know where to turn. I came across ‘lights on’ I knew my answers and my questions all at the same time. To know there are like minded people with the same visions and the skills to help me access my and my family’s learning experience is an incredible feeling. We have come so far in such a short time. I look forward to how this journey unfolds with eager anticipation.
Lights On® has been a game changer for me and my family and I am so grateful to that little facebook ad that popped up when I didn't know which path to take. My son was refusing school and I couldn't understand why he was no longer 'getting the grades'. With the support and guidance of the Lights On® team my 9 year old is smiling once again, no longer squashed by a school system that didn't recognise his full potential. We are adopting the Lights On® principles as a family and I am so excited about the possibilities that are consequently going to open up for all of us.
I'm so glad Lights On popped up in my FB feed! Joining the programme has built my confidence is helping my children learn, improved the overall mood in our home and is creating happy learners in me as well as the kids! We have a long way to go with our neurodiverse son but now we are moving forward together with him and i am hopeful for our future!
LETTER TO JULIA BLACK.
I've been feeling very negative about my ability to homeschool my son recently and his lack of motivation to learn anything. Infact today I've been feeling a sense of impending doom about starting up again tomorrow. BUT ....then I read some of a transcript from Explorium about how we might expect our kids would want to learn as long as we make the learning fun and exciting...but it's not as simple as that. And that we cant GET our kids to learn. Then I watched your back to school fb live, which, even though, we are not in the mainstream school system anymore, was still so insightful and thought provoking. Finally I watched your FB live about gearing yourself back up when the ANTs have set in..and committing yourself 100%. Well it has all spoken to me so personally today it was spooky! As for the last FB post.....bless you Julia for sharing your vulnerability. Bless you for walking your talk and being willing to use yourself as a role model for what you teach. You could easily just stay behind a professional facade and still be providing the service we have signed up and paid for. But you give SO MUCH MORE than that. you share things money can't buy. You show and share your human-ness, your vulnerability, your own ANTS, your personal and family experiences. I really hope you know and feel how much you are appreciated for that and what a powerful impact you are having on so many of us.
I just wanted to share that.
Thank you again and warm wishes,
P.s. I'm not really sure why I had to write this like it was a letter but just humour me!
