AHEAD Member Webinar Series 2020 Schedule
AHEAD greatly value our members and their support in our work to create inclusive environments in education and employment for people with disabilities. Their support is very important to AHEAD's work in information provision, advocacy work, research, training, events and production of resources for the sectors.
We are pleased to be able to provide a range of free and exclusive AHEAD Members Only Webinars to show our appreciation for their support and to help equip our members with key resources on areas relevant to them. We circulated a survey asking members what they would be interested in AHEAD covering for the webinars and below is the first instalment of a range of Members Only Webinars which will take place this year and next year based on members' responses.
