1. UK-TASTN Network Group

We would like to thank the organisers of UKATA Bradford 2024 for accommodating the UK TASTN meeting.  This meeting is for suitably qualified Trainers and Supervisors of TA.  Attendees usually hold a TSTA / PTSTA / CTATrainer endorsement or are booked on a TEW workshop in the coming months.  This meeting represents Trainers and Supervisors from every field. It is not attached to any one organisation, rather is a network that belongs to its members from many organisations from the UK, Europe and beyond.

2. Open house exploring CCTA 

Conference delegates are invited to get into conference mode by joining a relaxed and informal session with members of the team who have been delivering the UKATA program of CCTA workshops over the last year or so. Whether you've attended some of the workshops, been learning about CCTA at your RTE or are wondering what it's all about, you'll be welcome to join us. We will be co creating the session with those who join and will do our best to respond to the needs and requests of those present - whether that's exploring the basic concepts, looking at specific CCTA models, exploring the challenges of using CCTA in practice, or going deeper into the theory or practice.  There will be a number of trainers present, so we will be set up to move into small groups to provide opportunities to meet different needs and requests. 


Delivered by the CCTA team members that are attending the conference: (from) Traian Bossenmayer, Berit Fahlen, Bev Gibbons, Nicole Lenner, Paul Robinson and James Sweeney.
