Zena Hodgson - Home Education Consultant
As well as home educating our 3 children throughout their “school years”, I also help other families with their home educating journeys.  I have run this support website for families since 2008 and have taken an active role in the home education community, running activities at groups & camps and acting as liaison between EHE families and Local Authority.

I am passionate about educational choice and have given evidence to Government Committees on the subject of Elective Home Education;  Education Committee 2012 and  Children, Schools and Families Committee 2009.   I was Trustee & Support Advisor at the Home Education Centre 2007 - 2015 and I have spoken at a variety of conferences and learning exchanges focused on alternative education, flexischooling and elective home education.

I really do want families to have the best experience possible and enjoy their home education journey with their children.   If you are looking for more information, then I highly recommend you get in contact with a local home education group near you (see the HE Groups page on this site), to find out what's on in your local area for families. There are also lots of great facebooks groups for general information and support.

If you are looking for specific, individual advice and support, I now work with families by offering 1-to-1 coaching and mentoring programmes - find out more here:
