EVENT: Introducing Social Pedagogy: Collaborating with Individuals & Communities

10 May 2017

Friday 26th May 2017, 09:15 – 13:00

MediaCityUK, University of Salford

Social Pedagogy is part of a Northern European hermeneutic tradition that seeks to involve individuals in the process of change as part of communities. At the heart of this approach is the use of holistic learning and relationships. In the UK its strengths based approach is increasingly being used to address solutions across the life course. This has resulted in the establishment of the Social Pedagogy Professional Association (SPPA) and development of occupational and practice standards.

The event is bringing together leading figures from academic and practice settings.  It provides an opportunity for participants from the social care, health, community and education sectors to share learning about the philosophy of Social Pedagogy and how its key concepts can be applied in the process of change.
