Join us at the inaugural Social Pedagogy Professional Association (SPPA) conference, 'Education in its broadest sense', for a welcoming and invigorating blend of inspirational key note speakers, experiential and practice based workshops, evolving special interest groups and networking.

Care and education are twin aims of social pedagogy: it is where care and education meet. Evaluations of social pedagogy training and development activities clearly show workforce development benefits as well as benefits for children and young people.

This conference aims to provide a place where everyone interested in social pedagogy can learn, debate, network, share good practice and gain new ideas. It will create a space to make links between children’s social care and other settings where a social pedagogic approach might be relevant.
