About this Event

About the Public Seminar Series

The University of Oxford Department of Education’s Public Seminar Series are held on a termly basis throughout the academic year and are designed to engage wider audiences in topical research areas from across the department. Seminars are free to attend and held on most Mondays during term from 5pm. Each seminar is convened by a member of the department and speakers include academics from across the department, the wider University, as well as internationally recognised professionals from across the globe.

Events in the series are aimed at academics, researchers, teachers, head teachers, government members, policy-makers and students, although anyone with an interest in the topic is welcome to attend.

All public seminars led by the department are free to attend and open to all.

All upcoming seminars are publicised, in advance, on the department’s event pages and where possible recorded and made available on the University’s podcast site.

Seminar abstract

The Children’s Commissioner’s 2019 childhood vulnerability report examines the latest scale of, and trends over time in, rates of childhood vulnerability. This is based on a definition of vulnerability spanning 71 categories of risk, creating a framework for consistent monitoring of need across issues in social care, health, criminal justice, family and other domains of children’s experience. This framework has been developed between 2016 and 2019 based on extensive review of concepts and data that highlights both levels of need and substantial gaps in knowledge. This seminar will provide a review of the framework, present substantive findings and set out the implications for research and policy.

This seminar is led by the Department of Education and convened by Lisa Holmes (Director of the Rees Centre & Associate Professor)
