Spring Workshops 2019

The annual Barry Bennett Spring Workshops bring together key suppliers of assistive technology hardware and software, and those working with SEN students in secondary and higher education.

These popular CPD events are free to attend and supported by key industry suppliers.

Each event runs for one day from 9:45am to 6:00pm with an optional evening networking event and delegates are given the opportunity to plan their time prior to the event by creating their own unique timetable of up to 6 seminar-style presentations.

During the day there is also plenty of opportunity to take time out to visit supplier stands in the main exhibition hall, try new and updated technology and network with colleagues in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

Refreshments, lunch and food at the evening networking event are all included.

Our initial registration system is now open! This secures your place at the event and once you have registered you will be sent a user name and password towards the end of January which will allow you to read about and choose the workshops you would like to attend.

Delegate Feedback

Below is a small sample of the fantastic feedback we received after our 2017 event

"I absolutely loved it. I liked that you had more than just the usual software companies there. I actually learned about a software programme I didn't know about which is rare at events like these."
DSA Assessor

"It's great to have so many friends and colleagues come together for such a well organised and delivered event."
DSA Assessor

"The event was well organised. BB Staff were extremely helpful and efficient. An excellent free CPD Day. Great Venue."
Assessment Service Manager

"The whole event was organized so efficiently and ran extremely smoothly. The session times were perfect, not too long, and the 15 minutes in between allowed space and time to re-focus and re-fuel if needed!"
Administrative Assistant

"My 3rd BB Spring Workshop and this one was again, very well organised and extremely helpful"
Assistive Technology Consultant

"Very informative and interesting, Being at least once a year able to actually touch and see the new assistive tools and find out about changes is just great."

"Find it a lovely opportunity to update my knowledge, network, catch up with old friends. Professional and business-like but in a friendly, family-like atmosphere. Once again, well done Barry Bennett team!"
Study needs assessor

"This was my first event as I am just starting to train as a DSA assessor. I found the whole event so useful from the stands, the presentations and from a networking point of view. All the staff from Barry Bennett were welcoming and give a very strong positive impression of the organisation."
