It’s now just over a month before our conference celebrating 25 years of CAT Practitioner training in the North takes place. The programme is now finalised and available to download. We’re really pleased with the range of workshops and posters being offered by trainers and graduates of the course, past and present.
Workshops will be open for advance bookings at the end of April. To start to decide on your preferred choices, have a look at the workshop details. You can download these along with the programme by clicking on this link:

We’re still open to offers of poster presentations. If you have a development, a reflection, a story, a piece of research or an evaluation you’d like to share, get designing. Let us know an outline of your plans so that we can make sure there’s space. You’ll have the chance to give a sixty-second ‘call-out’ to the whole conference to draw people to visit your poster.
If you have a local or regional network, gathering or special interest group you’d like to promote, we’ll find a place for this too.
We are struck year on year by the quality and range of essays written as part of the course. We know some of our graduates go on to publish articles based on these, or on subsequent work. As a course we don’t claim any ownership of these but would like to provide space to collect, collate and celebrate graduates’ publications as part of the conference. If you’d like to share any of your publications, send on details of your books, articles, chapters and blogs.
There may be other events or networks you’ve been part of or helped create that you consider have grown from your CAT training. If you’d like to mark or record these too in some way at the conference, then let us know.
We plan to have some interactive space to help house all of these ‘artefacts’ on the day. We’ll use the Twitter hashtag #CAT25celebrate to gather any images and online links. We also hope to create a virtual record through a website page linked to the conference.
Do feel free to pass on details of the day to colleagues, managers, trainers and others who might be interested. All are welcome to join us to learn more about how CAT’s grown in and around the North, its evidence base, and future developments.
We look forward to seeing you there.
