Save the date – Join the Senior PWP forum on the 9th September 2020

Dear Colleagues,

There has been quite a significant hiatus since we last met as a group, but we’re really keen to re-start this group, and, following on from the recent PWP survey in regards to interest in future online training more specifically for PWPs, this seems like a really good time to do it!

We would like to invite you to a Senior PWP forum on Wednesday 9th September 2020 12:30-15:30.  This will be a remote meeting via Microsoft teams (joining information will be circulated once you confirm your attendance). If you know of any Senior PWPs who may not have received this invite, please do forward it on so we can ensure they are included in the event.

The purpose of the event will be:

  • To re-start this important forum for senior PWPs
  • To identify a new Chair for the Senior PWP forum
  • To begin to consider the organising of a number of online training more specifically for the PWP workforce and what this might look like (possibly linking in with other Senior PWP networks in other regions)
  • A skills session on the delivery of supervision via telephone or video platforms

We hope to see lots of you there on the 9th September 2020.
