You will have the opportunity to develop your own creative, practical activity based on a relevant issue that can be used with children, young people and families. This could be story-based, a game, toolkit, puzzle or quiz. It's up to you to choose what to create.

The session will be delivered by a leading member of academic staff and has been designed for anyone who has an interest in pursuing a career working with children and families
