The project aims to share best practice in the areas of prevention and early intervention (PEI) in disadvantaged populations, evidence informed practice, practitioner training in PEI approaches, and the importance of early childhood care and education (ECEC) as a preventative tool. The objective of this learning exchange is to allow partner organisations to develop and reinforce networks, increase their capacity to work at a transnational level, share and confront ideas, practices and methods in ECEC and PEI.
The next and final learning exchange is scheduled to take place in Dublin and will be hosted virtually via Zoom over 2nd and 3rd of November.
This is your chance to get involved in the learning exchange and hear from speakers/ virtually visit services.
Attendees have the opportunity to hear about best practice in Ireland and abroad, as well as meeting colleagues from Portugal, Norway and The Netherlands to share your own experiences and reflect on what you have heard throughout the event.
Please see below a detailed programme of Days 1&2 is attached, and we are seeking up to 15 participants to attend these days.
