Social Pedagogy Development Network (SPDN)

A Free Event at  West Kent College, Tonbridge
6th & 7th April, 2017

Within the last few years, the relationship based approach of social pedagogy has been capturing the imagination and changing the practice of many professionals in social care, education, health and the creative arts.

With a longstanding tradition in many European countries and elsewhere in the world, social pedagogy has at its heart a task that is both simple and complex: to support people in developing their potential, aspirations and well-being.

The theme of the 15th SPDN event is focussed on nurturing well-being from a social pedagogical perspective.

Come and

  • participate in a unique collaborative learning opportunity
  • meet hundreds of inspired people and find out about their ambition and experiences
  • get involved in holistic thinking and reflection
  • connect new ideas on well-being to your own practice and personal life
  • learn from academics, professionals, practitioners and bring in your own expertise
  • join in with creative activities, workshops and consultations
  • enjoy a great atmosphere and refresh your enthusiasm for your work
