BACP Universities & Colleges Conference 'Innovation & Care'

The BACP UC Executive, in responding to requests to make conference attendance more accessible and attractive, have decided to pilot a new format for 2015.

This one-day conference, which will be repeated in two different locations, will provide delegates with the opportunity to learn about, and explore, key contemporary issues which are relevant to counsellors and counselling providers in FE and HE across the UK.

Four speakers, known for their knowledge in particular areas, will present and introduce the conference topics to the whole delegate group as the day begins. The four topics will then be explored in more depth in workshops throughout the rest of the conference. Delegates will have the opportunity to attend two of the four workshops. 

CLICK HERE to book your place on the conference taking place on 22 June 2015 at Leeds Beckett University.

Alternatively you can book your place online or call the Customer Services team on 01455 883300.
