Parents@TUOS Coffee Morning - Christmas, Cake & Chat!

Tuesday 19 December 2017 // 11:00am – 12:30pm // ADB-A225 (BMS Conference Room) Alfred Denny Building

Tea/coffee and cakes provided

This is a chance to meet other parents working and studying at the University of Sheffield, share your experiences and enjoy some festive refreshments. In response to our members suggestions, we are running an informal speed networking session, with tables dedicated to some of the common parenting issues we all face, including 'starting school', 'planning and returning from parental leave' and 'teenage children'. Come and share how you dealt with these challenges and meet and learn from other parents dealing with the same. Stay with each topic for as long or short a time as you like.

More information about this session will be available soon.

Quarterly coffee mornings are for men and women (from all staff categories in both the Faculties and professional services and postgraduate researchers) at the University who have families, or are about to start a family, or are thinking about having children in the future.

This aims of the Parents@TUOS Network are:

  • To be a conduit for information
  • To support all staff and students through career breaks
  • To share best practice and ‘how to’ tips
