The London borough of Hackney is the first of several education authorities to provide teachers with a course in nurture group work. Run by the Nurture Group Project in collaboration with the Cambridge University based Associaton of Workers for Children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, the course was completed by 20 teachers and learning support assistants. Hackney was the original testing ground for nurture groups 30 years ago.
