The first phase of the training programme is now complete and was a huge success. A total of 30 Panels and 60 members attended the training and have told us it was extremely helpful and informative. Feedback also tells us the members found the training relaxed and friendly, which is great to hear!
Members said they valued the training, they learned a lot and appreciated the opportunity to network. They really enjoyed the opportunity to build relationships, share ideas and seek support on finding solutions for some of their local issues.
SDEF would like to thank those who participated – you were fabulous trainees!
So what next?
SDEF is preparing a summary report which will tell us what people have learned in more detail. We will add this to the website soon. We will also add a link to Flickr, where you can view some photo’s taken at the events.
Phase 2 (Intermediate) starts in July! We are really excited about Phase 2 and looking forward to meeting the delegates again. In Phase 2 we will concentrate on the areas where members have told us they need more support and expand on the subjects talked about in the Introductory Phase 1.
Dates for the upcoming events have been posted to our new Access Panel Network Facebook Events Page. If you’re a Facebook member why not pop in on our new Access Panel Network Page and Like us to keep up to date with what’s happening.
