Portobello Learning Festival 2019

Changing Relationships – Changing Lives

Building on the success of the first Portobello Learning Festival in June 2018, the 2019 Festival offers attendees a chance to think even more deeply about how we get the best outcomes for young people in our schools and communities. We’ve teamed up again with Portobello High School and The Real David Cameron to ensure a repeat of last year’s successful festival.

Anyone is welcome to attend our workshops. They have a welcome, relaxed feel, and will draw on lots of discussion among participants. We limit attendance to 25, in order to facilitate that discussion. These workshops will suit both those who are new to the study of trauma and those who have already developed confidence in the topic. It doesn’t matter to us whether you come from personal or professional interest. What we value is your curiosity!

Those who attended last year will get the chance to hear about progress that’s been made in schools over the last year, to get to some of the workshops that they heard great things about but couldn’t squeeze in, and to choose from a whole range of new workshops. For anyone who wasn’t there last year, this is the chance to hear from outstanding speakers (Paul Dix, Nina Jackson, Dr Suzanne Zeedyk and David Cameron have now confirmed), to learn from inspired practitioners across the country, and to gain insights from some of the most engaging workshop leaders in the country (Debra Kidd, Hywel Roberts thus far).
