At Essex, we want to invest in the next generation of students to better prepare them for future university study.
We recognise that teachers are an important part of this preparation and so we’re committed to investing in your continuing professional development wherever we can. As part of this, we run a week of free, high quality CPD training opportunities open to all teachers and advisers with an event each day to cover a specific topic.
The University of Essex has now agreed to adopt additional action to protect our staff, students and our wider community against the spread and impact of COVID-19. As the number of cases in the UK increases, we have taken pre-emptive steps to protect members of our community from the risk of infection.
From Monday 23 March we started implementing enhanced protection measures, which, amongst other steps included suspending all University public events and gatherings, including our face to face schools engagement work.
This therefore means that, unfortunately this event has had to be cancelled.
We appreciate you may already have transport in place for these events, if you are outside your cancellation period for coaches or are unable to claim the money back from your school insurance please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know this will be as disappointing to you as it is to us, and we do hope that you and your students can continue to be supported by the University of Essex virtually through resources that we are currently developing.
Join us between 30 March - 3 April 2020 at our Colchester campus for an inspiring week of completely free CPD opportunities.
