Collaborative Conversations

Collaborative Conversations provide an opportunity for practitioners to connect with colleagues across PKC. Class teachers have engaged very well with these opportunities. They are planned around current themes and provide an opportunity to hear from ESOs and invited partners, as well as share their own approaches and ideas.

“Really manageable, really practical and really supportive. Thank you! Will be recommending to colleagues." (feedback from attendee)
