Staff and partners from the five ABS areas gathered in Bradford on 14th-15th June for the second Learning and Development event.  The event focused on the speech, language and communication outcome of A Better Start.

The audience heard from leading academics who shared the latest research on early language development and from inspiring individuals such as Jean Gross, the former government communications champion and Julia Cleverdon, chair of the National Literacy Trust. 

Filmed presentations and materials from the event will be available shortly.
