As usual at the beginning of each academic year it is a requirement to run the suite of statutory CPD training.  This year we are doing this online, and the Central Team will be completing this training on Tuesday 1 September 2020 between 9.00am and 11.30am, with a conference call at 11am (details below), all staff must complete the questionnaire which will act as an attendance register, declaration and knowledge test must also be submitted during this time period.  

Please note that we are not expecting all staff to be office based for this training, we must adhere to the maximum capacity numbers for each office as set out in previous communications so please discuss with your team who will be in the office for this training or working from home - a dial in option is detailed below for part of this training so everyone can be included.
