International Training Programme online sessions

During the period of lockdown – and now we are all working towards our ‘new’ normal – the ITP team would like to continue to sharing knowledge, skills and experiences online through discussions, workshops and ‘show and tell’ tours.

So I’m delighted to share with you details of a series of online sessions for our ITP network.

We have a wonderful variety of themes and speakers so I hope there will be something for everyone here and looking forward to ‘seeing’ you all there!!
