Social Pedagogy Training

As a response to the emerging need for creativity, efficiency and effective practice, we have developed a range of new training courses to add to, and compliment, our existing courses.

The European approach of Social Pedagogy has gained momentum in recent years across the UK.  Centre staff and associates have experience with the strategic and operational implementation of this approach in local government and the voluntary sector.

Social Pedagogy emphasises reflection, holistic practice and that reinforces the belief that successful group work programmes requires the encouragement of our personal selves.

Social Pedagogy is an enabler, complimenting and building on the values of Centre work.
