Bookings paid for will be refunded in the event of cancellation. If the course runs it will be held in line with government advice and guidelines on social distancing.  

The sessions were excellent, thought provoking, stimulating and practical.

I came to these sessions quite naive around how I could influence change in my workplace. I will be sharing what I have learnt amongst peers, hoping to influence others.

A superb programme.

I feel privileged to have listened to the speakers and no longer feel intimidated by politics.

The programme made politics reachable and tailor-made for nursing. 

One of the best courses I have ever been on in my career. Thank-you very much. 

I intend to be politically aware and to be more active in future


Informative, empowering and envisioning.
