Our learning network
The Bettws Early Learning Community is one of five demonstration sites around the the UK . We are part of Save The Children’s UK wide learning network which aims to share learning from their work in order to have wider impact. The network exists to:
- Build a network of Save the Children UK staff, local partners and colleagues working on similar projects across the UK and abroad
- Share our work – drawing on case studies or examples of work from one or more of our partnerships and/or country teams
- Learn from others – we bring in ‘guest’ speakers from place-based, early years and anti-poverty initiatives and campaigns from beyond the Save the Children UK network, focused on case studies of specific initiatives or projects and hearing directly from the people who led the work
Here are some of our Webinars…
An Introduction to Systems Change
What does local systems change look like in practice? What are the challenges and opportunities for change at a local level? How can we turn theory into to action to effect change in the Early Years system?
Hear Save the Children Wales and their partners from the Bettws Early Learning Community share their learning from delivering a local systems change approach in practice. This video focuses focus on practical side of systems change, sharing experiences, opportunities and challenges from the past three years working at a hyper-local level to improve children’s outcomes in an area affected by poverty.
Hosted by colleagues from the Reach Foundation, a founding partner of Feltham ELC, this event focused on the key elements of Reach’s offer to families in the first 1001 days.
Colleagues from our ELC national learning and evaluation partners Collaborate and New Philanthropy Capital facilitated a conversation about what Save the Children and ELCs have learnt about local systems changed. They drew on the culmination of the three-year evaluation across four communities: Bettws, Feltham, Margate, and Sheffield.
