Fireside Chats for Parents

These informal online discussion groups are run for parents/carers and facilitated by Potential Plus UK’s trustees. They take place via Zoom.

Fireside chats focus on a topic requested by parents and carers but often wander into other areas of discussion as led by the conversation. The chats provide opportunities to explore some common issues for high potential learners, for parents to ask questions, and to share ideas and tips. Our trustees have ‘lived experience’ of parenting a young person with high learning potential and most are long time members of our community

Members need to log into the community area and visit the events calendar to sign up for these free sessions.
