Home Education Workshop
March 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Somerset Parent Carer Forum is a independent not for profit community interest company that works with families in Somerset. Several of our families are now home schooling or are considering this for their children and they have approached us requested information.
We are therefore going to run three workshops to explore support for Home Education within Somerset. We want to hear your experiences and thoughts on how it has been for your family. What help, and support is available locally, including support networks? Which are your favourite places to visit and what resources are good to use? What would you have liked to know before you started home education?
The workshops will be run by 2 of our representatives, one currently home educates and the other has done so in the past. Over the course of these workshops we will gather information that can be shared with local families who are either home educating or are considering it. This will then be used to create a resource available both online and as a paper copy. We want this to be guided and designed by the groups themselves, so we are looking forward to seeing how this develops.
The workshop will be really relaxed, and we would like children and young people to attend and join in with the discussions and to help decide on how the information should be displayed and shared. We will also have some colouring activities for younger children to do if they want to. We have a small amount of money which we can use to support with travel expenses to get to the sessions.
