Children’s Research Network

Mentoring programme

As a new offer to members, the Children's Research Network have launched a structured research mentoring programme targeted at practitioner researchers and other professionals engaged in research with children and young people outside of academic structures and thus without the same access to support and supervision. The new programme is particularly relevant for early years educators, youth workers, social workers, teachers and research interested professionals working with children, young people and/or families.

Children’s Research Network Annual Conference

The theme of this year’s Conference is ‘Children and young people’s participation’. Giving voice to children and young people is a key priority in research, practice and policymaking.
