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 are completely closed, others only open for vulnerable pupils and key workers' children, and some fully open.

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 Fellow. We plan to run one talk per week for the foreseeable future. We plan to record the Expert Talks and make them available on our YouTube channel to view afterwards.


You can find details of the Expert Talks and the joining instructions on our Training Calendar

The Expert Talks are being developed in response to members request for information and guidance during this pandemic. Therefore if you have particular topics you think we should cover please email:
