Birmingham City Council: Virtual School conference

Birmingham City Council played host to over 200 Designated Teachers, Head Teachers and other practitioners involved in the education of children in care on 27 February.

They gathered at a conference held at Birmingham City Football Club to consider and learn about how schools can be safe spaces and nurturing communities for our most vulnerable and traumatised young people.

Delegates left reporting that they felt 'inspired' and 'motivated', with one delegate stating that the day was 'wonderful', adding that they felt the training content should be made compulsory for all school staff.

We were delighted to see the venue virtually bursting at the seams with enthused delegates, so we at KCA would like say a big 'Well done!' to the Virtual School team at Birmingham City Council for attracting such a large crowd, and helping to stimulate an atmosphere of enthusiasm and interest.
