For teachers, taking the 26 and 27 May for this CPD course would fall under arrangements for short term absences. We appreciate that cover has been an issue for most of this year and have compressed the agenda to ensure minimal disruption.

There is no cost for this course and activities and meals will also be covered by NEU, however you must commit to attendance as places will be allocated first come first serve. Please email Danielle Black to secure your space.
