This is the third episode based on the  one-day ‘Pivotal Conversations’ conference which took place at Bridgend College on Wednesday 15th July on the theme of  Children, Mental Health & Behaviour.

Colleagues from many areas including The Police, Social Services and Education joined the conversation and over the summer we are presenting some audio clips from the event so everyone can benefit from the conversations which took place.

Summer SunThis ‘Pivotal Summer Short’ features the fascinating session led by two colleagues from TBAP – The Tri-borough Alternative Provision (TBAP) multi academy trust. TBAP provide education and support through alternative provision (AP) academies and support teams which work hard to make sure that every learner reaches their full potential. Rita and Becky from TBAP told us about their approaches and the importance of the therapeutic interventions they use.

We hope that hearing from the first Pivotal Conversations conference will inspire you to get involved with the forthcoming events which will take place in the new academic year 2015-16.
