Professional Development Conference & CPD

As mentioned in our June 2020 update, as we are unable to host our National Conference in January 2021, the HELOA Training Team will be working on a range of one day Professional Development Conferences and Webinars  to support our members and provide high-level training that mirrors what you would have seen at our national event.

Our June 2020 event, kindly sponsored by UniBuddy saw over 80 of our members talking our mental health for students and higher education staff during the global pandemic. We hope to run two more PDC’s this year – programmes and bookings forms to follow soon.
