Equality Commission for NI

Equality Commission for NI

This is a free event
A half day conference to consider how to ensure the effectiveness of home-school engagement, overcoming the range of barriers which exist.

Research and practice have demonstrated the benefit of home-school engagement in supporting educational achievement. They have also identified a range of barriers to it, such as language, culture, level of understanding of the education system and the wider context of family life.

At the event, you will hear from and have the opportunity to ask questions of a range of speakers from the education and community sectors about the barriers and solutions to building effective links between home and school.
