Title: Teenage Pregnancy: building on progress

The Teenage Pregnancy Strategy made significant progress in both reducing teenage pregnancy rates and improving support for teenage mothers and young fathers. The seminar will explore the lessons learned and how progress can be maintained in the new and complex education and health landscapes.

Alison led the previous Government's successful ten year Teenage Pregnancy Strategy. Previously a nurse and Health Visitor, then Policy Director at Brook, the UK's leading young people's sexual health charity, she has over 25 years strategic and frontline experience on teenage pregnancy and sexual health.

After twelve years in the Teenage Pregnancy Unit, Alison left the Department for Education in September 2012. She is now Director of a new Teenage Pregnancy Knowledge Exchange at the University of Bedfordshire to build on the successes of the Teenage Pregnancy Strategy and ensure the lessons learned are retained and transferred to new policy makers, commissioners and frontline practitioners. The Knowledge Exchange provides information, consultancy and training to local areas to help them make further progress in reducing teenage pregnancy rates and improving outcomes for young parents and their children.
