Training

Every year PAC-UK offers a comprehensive training programme focusing on adoption and permanent placement specific topics. Some of these workshops and seminars are for professionals only, and some are specifically for parents and carers. Public seminars and conferences are open to all parties affected by adoption and permanency, including professionals.

Thanks for putting on the super 'Let's take it from the top' training. It was a really inspiring day that helped to make better sense of what some of our children and families are struggling with.Social Worker

It was a pleasure to meet you and hear you speak. It was just right and hit the spot for our audience.Education Officer

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the day. There was lots of opportunity for participation. We had a very nice, mixed group of people which helped a lot and Kim was excellent as she managed to mix audience participation & what she had to say, so well. I feel that I got a lot out of it.Adoptive parent
