I would highly recommend joining the Quality Improvement Forum. I felt ‘like a professional’. The forum was well run, friendly, welcoming and very informative. It was encouraging to be able to share our ideas and experiences with each other. I felt that what I had to say was valued and helpful to others, and I certainly found the insights of others helpful. There was certainly a different feel to this forum which valued us as professional leaders and educators. I would highly recommend it.

I always find these events useful and good to have time out of setting for reflection.
