CPLAAC 2018 National Study Day

Wednesday 10th January 2018 at BPS Offices, Leicester

Registration for this event has now closed. If you have any queries please contact us via the event hotline on 01332 224506.

The CPLAAC 2018 National Study Day aims to recognise and capitalise upon the continued interest and enthusiasm of professionals working with children, young people and families who are Looked After, Adopted or at risk of entering the care system. Many may remember that some really interesting discussions, opportunites for CPD and important connections have been built between like-minded colleagues at previous National Study Days.

It is hoped that by selecting a more central location we will be able to see a wider geographical patch represented and hear from a diverse range of clinicians. As always, we are keen to welcome anyone who feels they would benefit from attending and contributing to the day.

It will be a pleasure to welcome several generous people who have confirmed their availability to present, including Julie Hudson, Kim Golding and Matt Woolgar. I'm confident that, alongside several exciting workshops which are in the pipeline, we'll have a really stimulating and worthwhile day.
