This event is to bring together educators leading Alternative Provisions for troubled children and young people who are not currently in mainstream schools including PRUs, SEMH schools and EOTAS.
When: Friday, 12 October 2018 from 09:00 to 16:00 (BST)
Where: Birmingham, United Kingdom
Those supporting this most vulnerable group in our educational community often work under difficult circumstances, hence the need for a network to provide support and share best practice.
This event will not be about ‘important’ people delivering long presentations. The important people in the room will be you. We want to bring leaders together to share what works, consider a range of questions and challenges and come away with some solutions to specific issues.
We will take a workshop and discussion group approach and will be asking you what the topics should be in advance – and we will also ask you what you can share – successes, challenges and what you are trying out.
- What are our main challenges?
- What works?
- How can we best support each other moving forward?
Would YOU like to lead a discussion group or workshop? Would YOU be able to invite colleagues from other provisions and spread the word? Please be in touch with us and help out.
WE WILL BE HOSTING AN INFORMAL NETWORKING EVENT (drinks and food!) ON THE EVENING OF THE 11TH FOR OVERNIGHT GUESTS – dependent on demand. Please do let us know either way.
For your convenience, here are some details about accommodation in central Birmingham. We ask you to take care of your travel and if necessary stay, we aren’t able to help very much with it as our only local connection is Daniel Sobel who left Birmingham 25 years ago so he’s absolutely no help whatsoever!
