Scottish social pedagogues nominated for award

You are here

The social pedagogy team in Edinburgh were nominated for the Council’s Children and Family Award under the category of Creating, Inspiring and Innovating.

Social pedagogue and supervising social worker Christine Spurk says: “We are happy to say that although the presenter could not pronounce social pedagogy and we are sure he did not know what it entailed, the judges clearly understood what we are trying to build and create in Edinburgh. Foster carers fed back on how inspired they were with the training and we were highly commended in this category.”
