The Centre for Excellence in Child & Family Welfare in conjunction with Berry Street invite you to attend an Early Intervention Forum which will be held at the RACV City Club on the 6 November 2019.
We are delighted to have Tom McBride from the Early Intervention Foundation in the UK as our keynote speaker. The Early Intervention Foundation (EIF)) was established in 2013 to champion and support the use of effective early intervention to improve the lives of children and young people at risk of experiencing poor outcomes. EIF focuses on promoting and enabling an evidence-based approach to early intervention related to the developmental issues that can arise throughout a child’s life, from birth to the age of 18, including their physical, cognitive, behavioural and social and emotional development and wellbeing.
EIF’s work is relevant to a wide range of policy and service areas, including health, education, families and policing.
Tom McBride is the Director of Evidence at EIF and leads their evidence generation work across the organisation.
Tom has 15 years of experience of public sector research and analysis roles. He joined EIF from the Department for Education, where he led the Strategic Analysis function providing analytical support across all areas of policy. Much of his work focused on the performance of disadvantaged children, and the role of education in improving social mobility.
Prior to that, Tom worked for eight years at the National Audit Office, where he developed and led the Decision Analysis and Modelling group as well as designing and delivering multi-method evaluations across a range of government activity
We are excited to offer you the opportunity to hear Tom speak.
