The Social Pedagogy Professional Association (SPPA) is hosting its annual conference in September in Edinburgh. The conference theme is ‘Growing up, growing old, staying well: a social pedagogical approach’. Four Camphill co-workers from Milltown, Blair Drummond and Camphill School Aberdeen will be delivering workshops at the conference, in which they will share their experiences of how the insights of social pedagogy have enriched their work.
Andrew Plant, who will be co-delivering one of the workshops, said
The theories and practices of Social Pedagogy have much in common with the values and principles that are the basis for the work of the Camphill communities in Scotland which provide housing, care and support and day placements for children and adults with learning disabilities.
Camphill communities are continuing to develop closer links with the Social Pedagogy Professional Association and the SPPA conference that is being held in Edinburgh this September is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of Camphill and also to deepen our appreciation of what the two movements have in common. Four Camphill co-workers will be delivering two workshops at the conference in which they will share their experiences of how the insights of social pedagogy have enriched their work.
