Event description

Description

Building on the success of the first Portobello Learning Festival in June 2018, the 2019 Festival offers attendees a chance to think even more deeply about how we get the best outcomes for young people in our schools and communities.

Those who attended last year will get the chance to hear about progress that’s been made in schools over the last year, to get to some of the workshops that they heard great things about but couldn’t squeeze in, and to choose from a whole range of new workshops. For anyone who wasn’t there last year, this is the chance to hear from outstanding speakers, to learn from inspired practitioners across the country, and to gain insights from some of the most engaging workshop leaders in the country.

If the buzz is anything like the 2018 conference, it will be a day of wonderful encounters, toe-tapping music and broad smiles. We’ve already slotted in some surprises, and we’ve ensured that great cakes will once again be baked by the talented students of Portobello High School. We will provide lunch, refreshments and a range of exhibitors (with many offering bargain deals) all for the cost of £50.

Underpinning all these elements is our focus on the same themes as last year:

- What are the things that hold young people back from learning?

- How do we overcome these challenges, particularly those stemming from Adverse Childhood Experiences?

As with Portobello Learning Festival 2018, we will ensure that PortyLF19 will be an unmissable event for anyone who believes that young people’s futures should never be limited by their pasts.

Your joint hosts -- connected baby, The Real David Cameron Ltd & Portobello HIgh School -- all look forward to welcoming you!
