Connect with the SPDN

Join us at our next SPDN event

We cordially invite you to join us at the next Social Pedagogy Development Network event in Paisley on 18 May, 2018. The event will be hosted by Kibble Education and Care Centre, and you can click here to book your free place.

The SPDN is a grassroots movement, a place for practitioners, students, service managers and academics alike to find out how organisations up and down the UK (and beyond) have so far developed social pedagogy within their services, and to share ideas and connect with other professionals who have a similar passion for their practice. Its free events, hosted twice a year by different organisations, aim to increase our collective understandings of social pedagogy in ways that are inspiring, practice-relevant and reflective of social pedagogical principles and values. We aim to stimulate reflection on how professionals can further develop their practice and thus make an even bigger difference to children, families and groups they engage with. And through the SPDN we have learned a lot about what social pedagogical practice might look like in children’s homes, fostering services, family support services, communities for adults with disabilities, residential schools and many other settings.

As we want everybody to be able to actively engage in the SPDN, all places are free of charge but limited to 4 per organisation so as to enable a wide range of organisations to join. Any additional places may be available nearer the time or incur a voluntary contribution towards any additional venue and catering costs for the host organisation.

If you would like to join us at any future SPDN events, please sign up to our SPDN distribution list below. We will send you regular updates about the Social Pedagogy Development Network and relevant activities around social pedagogy, and you can unsubscribe anytime.
