PINS talk – LOVE – Monday 3rd December, 10am -1pm

PINS talks Love

Is there a place for love in our professional relationships with children and young people?

Join PINS members to explore this key question. This free, half-day event will consider; love and practice with care-experienced young people, love in early learning and care provision, love and the relationship between teachers and learners. We will also explore; love as a human right, love on the school curriculum, and indeed love as one of Scotland’s national outcomes.

“We grow up loved, safe and respected so that we realise our full potential”

– Scottish National Framework 2018.
