We have spent the summer planning and preparing the new staff development programme for 2015/16. You can find and book all the sessions through iTrent , if you can't find it on iTrent or want more information about a session just contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also see our sessions in date order on our events page.
There a number of new sessions this year including a group of sessions I will be running called the 'Digital Lunches'. As the title says there will be lunch and we will be talking about technology and the use of digital skills. These sessions are going to be hands on and interactive, we will share ideas, concerns and work together. I am also creating a MyBeckett module for the sessions so even if you can't attend you can interact and learn about the topics.
The topics I will be covering over the 8 sessions are :

This year we have also created a double sided A3 calendar for staff, one side has the staff development programme on, the other a staff processes calendar. The calendar is available in hard copy so drop email@example.com an email if you would like one sending out. The staff processes calendar for the next 3 months can also be seen on the landing page of the DEAP module in MyBeckett.
