IAN NORMAN-BRUCE, Education Consultant.
The Association is proud to be celebrating a 100 years of supporting its members working with schools, families and children in promoting school attendance and positive outcomes for children.
We will be hosting a two day conference in May where we will celebrate the Centenary with a Conference Dinner and we look forward to listening to our after dinner speaker Dr Gervase Phinn. We are hoping to have on display some archive material and would greatly appreciate any contributions that you may have from old photographs to publishable anecdotes!
If you are a past member or have any material why not get in touch with us via the contact form on this website.
Here is to the next 100 years.
Association for Education Welfare Management
Written by AEWM Web Manager
The Association for Education Welfare Management provides professional support for Managers in Education Social Work (ESW), the Education Welfare Service (EWS) and safeguarding in education. It has been doing this since its formation in 1917.
We help deliver effective and competent services, accessible to children, families and schools by maintaining a network of fellow professionals and providing a forum for members to share, support and consult. Our objectives are...
To promote and safeguard the rights of children and young persons and to establish and foster co-operation with other organisations working in the interests of children and young persons.
To advance the professional interests of its members.
To promote and improve the ethos of social inclusion.
To encourage the development and training of all staff in education welfare and social inclusion.
To disseminate information to the membership on developments in education welfare and social inclusion.
We have links with Government and other political and professional bodies including the Department for Education, Teacher Associations and Unions and our sister organisation NASWE.
Members receive information on current issues and potential changes affecting their work and are given opportunities to comment on consultation documents. They are also offered training and supporting literature. Regional groups meet quarterly to provide a forum for debate, exchange of views and a vehicle for the provision and discussion of information.
Membership of AEWM costs £30 pa and we welcome your applications. Further information is available on the website under the JOIN button. However if you would like to try before you buy, we would like to offer you a warm invitation to attend the next regional meeting in your area to receive information and make contact with other similar professionals.
