Inspiring change and improving knowledge

Dear Colleagues and Partners,

We are excited to announce that our annual best practice event for 2023 is already underway. While there has been a slight increase in the cost to £250, rest assured that it remains your event. Therefore, we encourage you to share any suggestions for topics or speakers that you would like to see at the event.

All bookings and event planning will be handled by our association treasurer, Robin Pivett. Once you have completed the booking form, Robin will take care of the necessary arrangements.

For further discussions or if you require additional information, please feel free to reach out to Robin at

Stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to welcoming many of our valued members and partners in September.

Inspiring change and improving knowledge

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to inform you that due to the reduction in working days per week, our esteemed course tutor, Mike Beard, has decided to step back from the training environment.


However, we are fortunate to have two capable committee members, Wendy McAllister and Adrian Parsons, who will now be taking charge.


The CDLO training program has been revised and now offers a comprehensive 3-day course held in Maidstone, KENT. The all-inclusive price per person is £975 + VAT, and it covers the following:

  • 4-star accommodation

  • Complimentary access to leisure facilities (Pool, Gym & Spa)

  • All meals, including restaurant and buffet options

  • Daily refreshments and pastries

  • Free parking

  • Course materials

  • CPD certificates upon successful completion


To express your interest in the next available course or to discuss further details, please reach out to Wendy McAllister or Adrian Parsons.

Thank you,


Wendy & Adrian
