We wanted you to be first to know that bookings are now OPEN for our 2020 Conference on Monday 21st September.
This year we've teamed up with our brilliant friends at Youthscape, and we reckon this could be our best conference yet.
Social distancing. Year group bubbles. Enhanced risk assessments. “Robust hand and respiratory hygiene” guidance. Visitor restrictions. School is going to look very different in the next academic year, because of the ongoing global impact of the Covid-19 virus. And this means the way that churches and Christian organisations offer support to schools will need to change too.
And of course, there are big questions about the impact that these last few months have had on children and young people. For some, it’s been a safe and enjoyable time, while for others, it’s been acutely challenging and traumatic.
As these children and young people return to schools in the coming months, the need for pastoral, safeguarding and wellbeing services is likely to be high.
There are certainly going to be challenges, but we want to face them with new hope, and navigate our way through them into a better future.
This free Conference will include keynote presentations, live webinars, breakout discussions and Q&A with a wide range of schools-work practitioners and experts.
So we’d love you to join us, wherever you’re based, as we explore the future together at our first ever online schools-work conference.

“I have plans for you,” says the Lord to Jeremiah, “plans to give you hope and a future.”
