Wednesday Afternoon Debate (14:45-16:15)

What might the FUTURE hold for childhood?

Many people tend to drift off during Wednesday and in recognition of this the main Conference finishes at 14:30 on Wednesday afternoon.

Those of you who are able to stay later are invited to join a ninety minute debate and discussion in the Congress Suite [this is the room that the Colloquia were held in]

This debate is going to be focussing on the current issue facing childcare as a result of the UK Government’s recently released response to the consultation on the childcare review and how this may impact on childhood in England.

Fundamentally, whatever views are held by Government and society about childhood will have a knock on impact for the services that are offered within the childcare workforce and that includes some playwork provision.

This debate will be chaired by Dr Wendy Russell

The initial contributions will be made by Adrian Voce [Policy for Play], Chris Martin [Unite the Union], Lesli Godfrey [SkillsActive], Prof. Hugh Cunningham and Tanya Petherick [Class of their own, Brighton]

Each contributor will present their thoughts on the question “What are the implications for playworkers and their abilities to support children’s play lives with a relaxing of the childcare regulations and requirements.”
