The theme of the conference is Aspirations and Ambitions, Changing lives through learning and the keynote speaker is Kriss Akabusi MBE

SIRCC writes ,”As a sector we are familiar with lifelong learning, which recognises the ability for us to learn and grow, even after the institutions of school and higher education. However, children and young people in residential child care are often affected by a disrupted educational experience throughout these important years. How can we as a sector use Curriculum for Excellence as well as other opportunities to further contribute to their learning, play, and conversation, and nurture creative pursuits in their day-to-day lives? Conference delegates will join speakers, participate in workshops and enjoy a range of networking opportunities. The conference will provide a venue to discuss and debate important local, national and international perspectives on some of the most creative and exciting aspects of residential child care practice.”
