ASCL and ASCL Professional Development have taken the decision to provide materials in a digital format as part of our ongoing commitment to become more environmentally efficient. You will therefore no longer receive a folder with printed handouts.   

Documents for the day will be emailed directly to all delegates on the morning of the event by 9.15am together with the wifi connection details. Due to the proprietary nature of the information, it cannot be sent out any earlier.

Please bring with you a fully charged laptop/tablet/device in order to access the documents online.

The conference will include some interactive elements utilising VEVOX voting software which will need to be downloaded prior to the event. We will send you details of how to do this with your joining instructions.
