A workshop exploring alternatives to mainstream education will be held in St Albans.
The workshop, organised by a local parent and hosted by educationalist Fiona Carnie, will explore educational paths for children that are believed to centre on having the child's best interests at heart.
Fiona has worked for many years in the alternative education sector.
The schooling approaches that will be discussed include flexi-schooling (part-time school education), Montessori and democratic learning (both forms of self-directed learning), and home education.
It will also consider how to set up an alternative learning environment.
