Young Enterprise Centres of Excellence National Annual Conference
Last week, Mr. Walters and Miss Aherne travelled to London to attend the Young Enterprise Centres of Excellence National Annual Conference. The aim of the trip was to form the initial stages for Brook Green Centre for Learning to become a facility for excellence in financial education. They met with other teachers of Maths and PSHE from schools across the country and attended workshops with other SEN schools. This was an opportunity to network with similar SEN teachers, sharing best practice and discussing challenges faced in delivering financial education. Martin Lewis OBE, who is an award winning campaigner on TV and radio, gave an inspirational speech on the importance of financial education for young people.
Overall, this was a worthwhile trip and put Brook Green Centre for Learning firmly on the road to becoming a hub for excellence in financial education.
