Understanding what motivates and prevents families from engaging with learning opportunities, support services, resources and guidance is essential if we are to improve outcomes for children, young people and their parents. 

In this conference, you will discover ways to effectively engage and work with families in your community, and reach new audiences. From what behavioural science can tell us about parental engagement to gaining richer understanding through family panels, the presentations, discussions and workshops will help you shape your offer,  so families benefit from your services.

"Insightful, informative real life."

“An interesting and thought-provoking day to improve our family learning offer.”

“A great opportunity to network and engage with other practitioners, finding similarities and exploring differences.”
