Following the government announcement of school closures, we find ourselves grappling with challenges in education both familiar and new.

The Learning for All webinar series returns on 21st January with the same aim of connecting good ideas across school communities, and reassuring everybody that we are never as alone as we think we are. This webinar will explore both what’s different this time round and what has remained true.

The webinar panel will address questions relating to the opportunities and challenges of the current way of learning. Particular attention will be paid to the contexts of DEIS and inclusive education and we will discuss and signpost practical supports available for teachers and principals. We will also revisit the importance of school communities connecting with each other to ensure sustainable ways of working for all.

Please feel free to submit topics or questions via the registration link and we will pass them to the panel.
