Workshop focus for NOC 2017

3 March 2017

Significant changes to the NOC programme for 2017 will see a greater emphasis on practical skills for LOC delegates, LOCSU has today revealed.More focus on break-out sessions at NOC 2017

Announcing the changes, Chief Operating Officer Richard Whittington, said: “There will be greater opportunity to attend the workshops. Following feedback from NOC 2016, this year's delegates will be able to attend a total of four break-out sessions during the day.”

Richard explained that there would be fewer keynote speeches and a greater focus on practical skills, role-based learning and networking opportunities for delegates which LOCs will benefit from on their return.

Following the new one-day format for NOC 2017, plans are being discussed to introduce a series of regional conferences for LOCs and Primary Eyecare Companies. This year’s NOC takes place on Thursday 9 November 2017 at Chesford Grange in Warwickshire.
