The National Education Opportunities Network (NEON) event ‘The Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NCO) Project: National Planning Conference’ will give both members and non-members of NEON the opportunity to come together to discuss and share progress in their planning of the new regional networks for collaborative outreach. It is essential that there is an on-going national dialogue across networks in both the planning and delivery of this project to ensure that resources in terms of both time and money are used efficiently and we can learn from each others work across England.
