Meeting the Challenges of Working with Children, Young People, Families & Communities student conference

This is to let you know you about our third annual Working with Children and Young People and Families Conference running during Worcester Week 2.

Meeting the Challenges of Working with Children, Young People, Families & Communities: “Make a difference, make a living & make it work”

Tuesday 24th January 9.45 -16.00

Following on from previous successful conferences, this is for all University of Worcester students interested in working with children, young people, communities and families. In recognition of the changing employment landscape we are particularly focusing this year on entrepreneurship and social enterprise within the sector. We have a range of speakers and workshops so we are looking forward to an interesting and thought provoking day.

Key note speaker:

Matthew Draycott, Serial Entrepreneur, Award Winning Business Mentor & Academic.

Matthew will be talking about the importance of entrepreneurial skills for all future graduates in managing their careers.

There will also be input from entrepreneurs in the social and education sectors, case studies and interactive workshops.

This conference is a collaborative event organised by colleagues from Careers and Employability, Institute of Education and Institute of Health and Society.

Places are limited so advance booking is essential. Student booking is through www.worc.ac.uk/workshops
