This online working group meeting is being organised in the context of the L.I.N.K. education programme, a joint initiative of COFACE Families Europe and KMOP education hub, which is part of the European Family Lab launched in 2020.
The meeting is aiming to create an informal and collaborative space, serving as an education hub, where members from different countries can learn from one another, exchange ideas, build partnerships and explore ways to improve and promote their education practices.
The working group will bring together committed professionals and staff in the COFACE network who are actively involved or interested in education programmes within their organisations, aiming to support both families and professionals through upskilling and life-long learning. REGISTER HERE
