SPPA conference 2017 - 'Social Pedagogy as education in its broadest sense'

We are delighted to announce the first SPPA annual conference. We will have speakers from a range of perspectives, from early childhood education to working with older people and foster care, all intrigued by making connections with social pedagogy and charting a way forward for social pedagogically informed policy and practice in the UK.

*Not yet a member? Joining as a SPPA member only costs £70 and you can then avail of the SPPA member standard fee of £80 (and if you are a student/non-wage earner you can join for £25 and avail of the £25 conference fee) - the total cost is the same as attending the conference as a non-member, but you get one year access to other SPPA membership benefits.

Please note: The evening of Thursday 5th October 2017 will be a free Members Only event, at which the 1st Annual General Meeting of the Social Pedagogy Professional Association will also be held. Formal notification of the AGM will be sent to Members in accordance with SPPA Articles of Association.
