Anticipating a death in the school community – lets talk about it
This conference is designed specifically for professionals working directly in schools and within the education sector as a whole and is a unique opportunity to learn directly from bereaved young people and from professionals.
Proposed programme is to include:
Stewart Wilson, Chief Executive of Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland will be our Chair for the day with Mark McDonald MSP, Minister for Childcare and Early Years as our keynote speaker.
- Identifying and supporting young carers
- The power of stories
- Creative ways – a collective approach
- Supporting children with life-limiting conditions
- Including death within the school curriculum
- Grief in a digital age.
“I really felt I was able to engage, and came away from the course invigorated, bursting with ideas, and desperate to share the experience with colleagues.”
“Really insightful and helpful. It has made a big difference to what I understand about bereavement and my knowledge of how to approach and support pupils and parents.”
