The date has now been confirmed for the North’s first men in early years conference, which will take place on Tuesday 18th July 2017 in Bradford, at the Media Museum and follows on from the first UK men in early years conference, held in Southampton in 2016.
The national conference will be a flagship event showcasing a multi-agency focus on engaging men in the early years, and how it can help improve outcomes for children. It will feature prominent speakers and workshop leaders from around the world who all share an interest and passion in men working in the early years and the importance of engaging with fathers. It aims to further raise the policy questions around gender imbalance in the early year’s workplace and a growing need for the positive modelling of men as care-givers for boys and girls. The conference will be a significant step forward in supporting the development of national and international networks for men in early years.
Delivery partners include the National Literacy Trust Hub Bradford, St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre, the West Bradford Children’s Centre Cluster, Bradford Birth to 19 Teaching School Alliance, and with input from the Fatherhood Institute.
