Learning into Practice Project summits

SCIE provided bookings and venue management for three summits on learning from children’s safeguarding serious case reviews. All events were rapidly oversubscribed and SCIE developed a process for ensuring a wide range of backgrounds and sectors were represented. Given the high level of interest in the sessions, SCIE also developed a process for those who were unable to attend to register their interest in further information about the project.
