The Conference

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Brought to you by HEADHUB (Home Education and Advocacy Hub) and Christian Home Educators Warwickshire (CHEW), the “Learn Free” Conference is being presented by home-educators, for home-educators and those thinking about home-educating.

The aim of this conference is to equip, encourage, empower, and enable home-educating parents to educate their own children with boldness and freedom.

With the freedom to home educate currently being challenged, it is more important than ever to be informed of political developments that affect us, and to connect with the home education community. Our talks, seminars and workshops at Learn Free 2018  will look at family freedom under threat, and inspire us to take positive action towards taking hold of, and affirming our freedom.

All home educators welcome!

PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

Queen’s Road Baptist Church is just a few minutes’ walk from Coventry Rail Station.

CHILDREN:

Please note that the conference is aimed specifically at parents, and we are simply logistically unable to provide childcare.  We view the conference as an opportunity for parents to take the time to invest in themselves as educators of their children. We would not want the lack of childcare to prevent anyone from attending, but must stress that any children present at the conference must be supervised by their parents, as we are not in a position to take responsibility for children.

There will be a room available with toys etc, where parents can sit with young children/nursing babies if necessary.

RESOURCE PROVIDERS

Tables are available at £15 per exhibitor for resource providers.  If you would like to exhibit, please email Juliet info@learnfree.org.uk.

 

SECOND-HAND RESOURCES

We have tables available should anyone wish to use this opportunity to sell used home-ed materials.  Please contact us at info@learnfree.org.uk to book a space.

We can provide helpers to supervise the table, but please make sure all items are clearly marked with their prices, and provide a “cash box”.

Thank you to our sponsors!!
