Midlands Practitioner Event

11/11/20 14:00 to 12/11/20 13:45

This free to attend event is for practitioners working in organisations that are members of BASE and operate across our Midlands region. BASE is keen to engage with service practitioners and this event is aimed at them rather than service managers.

We recognise that working on the frontline can sometimes be isolating and hope that this event will be the launch of what will become the BASE Midlands Practitioners Network, an opportunity for people involved in our sector to get together and meet with like-minded people.

Given the pandemic and the changes we have all had to make to the way we work then it seems really timely to take a little time out and get together to share ideas and learn from each other.

Why should you attend?

  • Represent your service and promote the work you are doing
  • Meet with people who experience the same challenges
  • Share success stories and develop solutions together
  • Hear from guest speakers
  • Develop your network of contacts and ‘go to people’
  • Continuous professional development

This training event is only open to staff working for organisations that are members of BASE. Registrations will only be accepted if made using a work email address.

Bookings can be made through Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/base-midlands-practitioner-event-tickets-125500706993
