This webinar will look into principles of social pedagogy utilized in residential child care in Denmark and Germany. The webinar will be delivered by Emmanuel Akpan-Inwang, Director of The Lighthouse - a new and innovative children's home established on principles of social pedagogy.
Emmanuel will share examples of recent trips to Denmark and Germany, where he has lived and worked in residential children's homes utilising social pedagogy.
Inspired by his experience of growing up in foster care, Emmanuel founded The Lighthouse, an organisation with a vision of radically improving education outcomes for children in care.
He is a former English teacher. He trained on the Teach First programme and taught in Birmingham for three years. Emmanuel has been developing the idea for Lighthouse since 2014 when he began conducting research into the educational experiences of looked after children. In 2018, he was awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship to study children’s homes in Germany and Denmark, the results of which informed the Lighthouse model. Emmanuel is a graduate of the London School of Economics and also holds an MA in Education and Leadership from Warwick University.
