Parent Speakers Programme Spring Term 2019
Wednesday 27th February, 7-8.30pm

Dr Kathy Weston regularly delivers engaging, inspirational talks to parents in schools, universities and places of work. With over 15 years experience as a social researcher with a particular interest in parenting, education and family life, she is a motivational speaker and is passionate about bridging the gap between academic research and parenting. Dr Weston prides herself on her ability to translate complex concepts from research evidence, into easy-to-apply tips.

Topics that are covered reflect the most common concerns that parents have when raising children today. Kathy will discuss practical tips for parents to encourage pupils to think independently at home, which will go hand in hand with the strategies that teachers are using in school.
