|The first meeting of The FASD Trust Education Professionals Forum took place on 12th July 2013 in Peterborough. The clear consensus from those attending was that the event had been very worthwhile and had served as a successful launch of the Forum. One participant described the event as "fantastic day" and the best meeting that she had attended "for a very long time"! The event received attention in local radio and regional television news broadcasts, and also featured in the local press (Peterborough Telegraph).
We are building on the success of the Education Professionals launch event by holding a series of "Roadshows" in various parts of the country. Below is the current schedule of such events (dates, locations), and if you are interested in having The FASD Trust Education Professionals Forum "roadshow" take place at a venue near you, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost for each of these days was in the region of £75 to £80 per attendee (see individual event posters or contact us for specific costs), which included refreshments, lunch and course materials. These days are led by Brian Roberts, a foster carer and former Head of Learning for Peterborough Children in Care. For more details please e-mail Stefan at email@example.com.
