These are opportunities for leaders and managers of settings to meet online and share conversations that are important to the sector and to running and leading staff in settings around Wales. We are facilitating these opportunities to network and share conversations.  

It is our intention to make these your meetings - with your booking you will be invited to suggest a topic. If there is a conversation that you think leaders and managers should share, we are happy to be guided by you.

We will email all leaders and managers booked on the network with the agenda and topics in advance. In addition to topics of challenge and a space to raise concerns, we would be delighted to share ideas for good practice, celebrate successes and innovation around Wales and invite any leader or manager that would like to share ideas.
