> PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Professional Development! How do we get our hours up? What are the best resources we can be accessing? 

Accessing Professional development can be tricky, getting to major centres is expensive and having to choose the courses you want to do and which ones to let slide.

We have created a list of some of the free and low cost training we know of, but please let us know if you know about more - especially those that are specific to your profession!! 

Some more information on Professional Development and Training is listed below.
