CPD training and events

One of the most important ways the EAUC supports our Members and the wider UK tertiary education sector is by providing a comprehensive events and training programme and an Annual Conference.

We offer a number of webinars and face to face training events. If we aren't running the event you need, contact us as we can run a number of on-demand events to suit your needs.
