Event description

Description

"Evidence shows that all young people need to develop both cognitive skills (such as maths, problem solving and language skills) and social and emotional capabilities to help them achieve the outcomes that they, and others, value both in their lives right now, and for their future." Young Foundation, 2012

Join us for a FairFuturesHack where we come together to challenge and spark ideas for equipping the next generation of children and young people to be prepared and ready for life and work.

This is the event for people and organisations that work with or have an interest in children and young people, including young leaders, commissioners, business leaders and those working in health, education and training, youth work, social care, early help, employment support, school improvement (primary, secondary and special) and economic development.

Young people in Islington have expressed that although there is a strong focus on their academic success, they feel there is limited support for teaching the social and emotional capabilities which are connected to issues such as employability, youth crime and preparation for adulthood. Join us to identify innovative ideas for working with both children (primary-aged) and young people to prepare them and develop their skills for:

  • Preparing for work and the future of work
  • Managing emotional wellbeing and feelings
  • Positive relationships with their peers and adults
  • Independent living including planning for and managing a home and money

We want to future-proof our children and young people as far as possible so that there are minimal surprises and they have the personal and social development they need to achieve their ambitions. The collective impact of services, organisations, young people and the community working together is key.

Their Ambitions, Our Future will take place on Wednesday 8 November from midday in Islington. More information on speakers and workshop sessions which will create ideas and solutions coming soon at: www.fairfutures.org. Please note, event times are subject to change.

Please register to attend this event by Wednesday 1 November.

If you would like further information, please contact the Fair Futures Commission project team on 020 7527 3848 or fairfutures@islington.gov.uk.

We look forward to seeing you on the 8th of November!
