Events & Training

We have made a number of changes to our programme of events so we can continue to provide you with access to high quality training and professional development. Several of our upcoming workshops have been adapted to be given via virtual classrooms so delegates can access remotely. We are also in the process of rescheduling some face to face courses to later in the year. Above all, we want to continue to provide a forum for discussion and the sharing of knowledge and ideas. 

We will post updates on our plans, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
