Academic Symposium 2016

25 Jan 2016

PET have recently secured funding for three years, enabling us to expand the focus of our research and policy work on the learning needs of young people and young adults. We are gathering evidence to shape this work, as well as to feed clear policy recommendations into the Charlie Taylor Review of the Youth Justice System. To help us achieve these aims we will be holding an academic symposium on Monday 25th January 2016 at London South Bank University for UK and international academics, researchers, practitioners and policy specialists. Please see here for the agenda.

Alongside panel discussions featuring former learners and academics, we will be holding a number of themed roundtables to gather expert views and knowledge to feed into the review. If you have a background in youth justice education and learning in its broadest sense and would like to attend this event, please sign up at our Eventbrite page here.
