The first two days will be held on 6th March and 3rd April at the Cambridge Professional Development Centre. The third day will be held on 15th May. Venue details for this date will follow soon. Each day will start with tea and coffee and will run from 9.30am until 3pm. Lunch and refreshments are included.
