It is hoped that EVCs and school leaders will take away new ideas for their school visits along with resources for funding. 

Featuring a range of expert speakers, latest guidance and good practice, the conference offers an opportunity to connect with like-minded colleagues and have discussions with other EVCs.

Billed as an inspiring day of learning and development it will be held at the British Library, London which is near Euston and King’s Cross.
