Expert Talks - a webinar series for unprecedented times 


So much of life is different now, and none more so than in our schools, where some have been completely closed, others only open for vulnerable pupils and key workers' children, and some fully open.

The changing situation and these different ways of working mean that we need to rapidly review our processes and procedures so that we can maintain the high quality of provision while remaining compliant.

Our series of Expert Talks will help support you and your school to respond to the challenges that you are currently facing.

These talks are free to join and each is being run by subject matter experts from one of our partners and/or ISBL Fellows. 

The Expert Talks have been developed in response to members request for information and guidance during this pandemic. 


Coming soon

We will have a new series of relevant and accessible Expert Talks starting in September. These will be on the topics that are the priorities for schools/trusts as schools start a new academic year and respond to new challenges.
