Learning Conversations Young Peopleand Families



Learning Communities are facing new challenges as they support young people’s learning both at school and at home. Understanding young people’s contexts, in these changing and complex times is more important than ever.

These resources are designed to support you to work with your colleagues around the needs of young people and their families, in partnership, as we continue to strengthen belonging and connectedness in our communities.

Join us and school colleagues  as we explore these resources:

  • Nine photos about me;
  • Three things that matter to me;
  • Five prompts to support listening to parents, carers and families.

This workshop introduces the resources and explores the different ways they can be used. Participants will have an opportunity in small groups to consider how the resource might be used in 3 way learning conversations with teachers, young people and families, to suuport co-designing for learning and strengthening learner agency.
