Resources and recordings from the NCELP Hub Day Webinar 2020

Images of webinar presenters

This webinar was hosted as an NCELP Hub event only. The original events schedule outlined each Lead School hosting a physical event where the target audience were schools local to them who have been involved peripherally with NCELP in some way. We decided to move to a central webinar given the current situation.

We are planning a wider event later in the autumn term beyond the current network and those who were invited to the webinar. More details to follow next term!
