Practical research for education conference

'Research as part of continued professional development'

This one day conference will give delegates the chance to learn how to embed research into their daily practice without the extra work. The benefits of doing so will also be discussed and the chance to share experiences and questions will be offered. If you are considering carrying out your own research, but not sure if you have the time, think again.

Places are available on a first come first served basis, starting at £90 for pre subscribers and NUT members. Lunch and refreshments are included.
