New features for the November Summit include new ticket passes, which allow you to build your own tailored summit, making it suitable for all budgets. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with your peers in a new live chat function during each talk, so you can share experiences, swap best practice and make new connections.

It wouldn’t be a Childcare & Education Virtual Summit without some incredible resources up for grabs and this time around, we’re going full on festive. This November you’ll see resources from the fabulous Mrs Mactivity, our resources sponsor, plus from our partner Creative Steps! Build a 3D Christmas tree cone, create hanging Christmas puddings and a pair of Santa binoculars, plus so many more fantastic craft ideas!

The event content doesn’t just stop at the 10 seminars either – you can get two extra CPD sessions completely for free. Firstly, is a fascinating session from Kulvinder Kaur Johal called ‘Growing Food, Growing Minds’, focusing on a holistic approach to growing, linking science, food technology and PHSE. Next up, is an inspirational session from Dr. Marcelo Staricoff that will teach you how to create a classroom that celebrates multilingual and multicultural richness from an early age.

On top of all of this, you’ll get access to exclusive offers and discounts within the sector, be in with a  chance of winning a practical science training session for your setting and a raffle prize worth a whopping £1000! You don’t even need to worry if you can’t make it on the day because for no extra cost, you’ll get the recordings of all your chosen talks, to watch anytime, anywhere.
