LOC Induction Programmes

Facilitated Online Induction Programme

Book now for the in-depth Facilitated Induction programme which is hosted using our online platform Noddlepod. This approach will include the opportunity to participate in private, online group discussions with other new members and experienced LOC officers, group webinars focused on specific LOC topics and activities designed to support delegates to become effective LOC members quickly. We also welcome experienced LOC members who would like to refresh their knowledge.
