External representation and upcoming meetings

The NRCPD Board met on 26 September, when it discussed the responses received to the consultation on NRCPD's CPD scheme earlier this year. The responses were wide ranging and contained a number of valuable comments, suggestions and insights. The Board will give the matter further consideration when it next meets on 5 December.

The Director, Alan Peacock, will be attending the Celebration of Scotland's First British Sign Language (BSL) National Plan on Tuesday 24 October 2017 in Edinburgh. The event will be hosted by Mr Mark McDonald MSP, Minister for Childcare & Early Years and Lead Minister for BSL.

The Practitioners Forum was held on 17 October in York. The minutes of the meeting in July were agreed and are now available on the website.
