THIS FESTIVAL IS A CELEBRATION OF THE WORK, PHILOSOPHIES AND STRATEGIES OF PRACTITIONERS WHO BELIEVE FULLY IN THE CONCEPT OF INCLUSION. DELEGATES WILL BE TREATED TO A DIVERSE RANGE OF SPEAKERS AND WORKSHOPS TO INSPIRE AND INFORM THEIR PRACTICE.
More than ever before, there is a need in education to recognise the unique and diverse needs of our learners to enable them to be included in the education system.
With a high stakes accountability culture, this agenda could be relegated to the side-lines. Speakers such as Dave Whitaker, Executive Principal of Springwell Learning Community in Barnsley (@davewhitaker246) will bring both moral purpose and authentic experience to share with attendees.
And… because we believe that working in education is the best job in the world, we have laid on lovely food, stalls at break time and great people to talk to. This is a festival of celebration.

This masterclass will draw upon Lisa’s doctoral research and will explore intimacy in professional adult-child relationships with a particular focus on the use of touch in practice. Drawing upon examples from the research, we will discuss some of the myths, misunderstanding and meaningful uses of touch in practice.
Lisa Warwick is a Qualified Social Worker and Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham, currently working on the ESRC funded project: ‘Organisations, staff support and the dynamics and quality of social work practice: A qualitative longitudinal study of child protection work’. Her PhD research was an ethnographic study of adult-child relationships and the use of touch in residential child care.
