Ascentis National Conference Online

We are delighted to announce that the Ascentis National Conference will return on Friday 4th December 2020 in a brand-new format.

With the way we live and work changing so rapidly and to protect the safety of our delegates it became unfeasible to hold our National Conference in its usual format. However, we didn’t want to cancel this opportunity for you to hear from industry experts, generate new ideas for teaching and share best practice; all of which are much needed at the moment. So, over the last few months we have been working hard to adapt the Conference and I’m excited to inform you that it will be brought to you online.

The theme will be Upskilling for a Digital Future and this year it will be completely free of charge to attend.
