Annual CONFERENCE 2020    #PRUsAP2020

The Recovery Curriculum & The New New

2nd July 2020

This year's Annual Conference was held entirely online and focused on some of the challenges faced by the education sector as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst the conference was planned with the alternative provision sector in mind, many of the sessions, including the key note, will be relevant for all phases of education.

Originally the event was presented as an online webinar, with all 500 tickets snapped up in less than two weeks. If you were unable to get a ticket, or if you attended but want to re-visit the sessions, we are extremely grateful that all contributors gave permission to record and share their sessions. As ever, you can follow and add to the event conversation on social media with the hashtag #PRUsAP2020.
