For queries about the postponed Natspec National Conference, please visit our conference website.

Contact Clare Howard or Ruth Perry with examples of effective practice and solutions or to raise specific issues relating to Covid-19.

We will also continue to send out fortnightly briefings and, as appropriate, specific emails to principals alerting them to important new guidance or updates.

With other Natspec members

We have set up a general COVID-19 online forum in the members area of the website. You can use this to ask advice, share ideas, or just let off steam!

There are also regional COVID-19 online forums that will allow you to connect with other specialist colleges in your area.

If you are not sure how to access or use these forums, have a look at this short guide.

We will also be facilitating a series of online regional meetings to enable principals to discuss COVID-19 issues together. Principals will receive invitations to these meetings via email.
