Thanks to the kind folk at the European Parents' Association (EPA) we have a new member at SPTC! Al the elephant was given to us as a gift at EPA's annual conference in Luxembourg which you can read more about on their blog.
We were extremely proud to accept the ALCUIN award at the conference for the Gathered Together project; the joint SPTC/BEMIS Scotland project that was launched in 2013. Gathered Together supports parents from Ethnic and Cultural Minorities to become more involved in their children’s education and school communities. The ALCUIN award honours the best educational innovation in Europe and we're pleased that Gathered Together's impact has been recognised. You can read more about the award on our website.
EPA gathers the parents associations in Europe which together represent more than 150 million parents. EPA works in partnership both to represent and give to parents a powerful voice in the development of education policies and decisions at European level.
