Having qualified as a social pedagogue and social worker in Germany, Alex has worked in a number of European countries. Her areas of expertise include children in residential care and social pedagogy family support (SPFH). Her experiences of working in child protection, child placement teams, leaving and aftercare, and family group conferencing services have given her a wealth of social pedagogy knowledge coupled with British social services experience, which enables her to creatively adapt courses and activities to the needs of individuals and organisations. Alex joined ThemPra in 2009 and have since led and co-facilitated different social pedagogy courses and implementation programmes with various local authorities, voluntary and charitable organisations throughout the UK. She is a passionate experiential learning facilitator, using creative methods to bring groups together along their social pedagogy journeys.
