We're sorry but this event will not be recorded or filmed. If you cannot attend, we suggest asking a friend to come and take notes for you. 
Claire Oldmeadow, Andrew Wickham and Jane Ryder will be hosting the event.  Come along with your questions, or worries, on how the new legislation coming into effect is going to affect you. If you think that going through a quality certification procedure even if it’s not sure it will be accepted for CPF funding is a waste of time? Think again : from January 1st, anyone who wants to benefit from OPCA financing will have to put a full quality procedure in place. If you’ve already worked on certification, it will be very simple to do, if you haven’t, you will find yourself with quite a workload to catch up on.

Please note that this legislation is only relevant to those of you who deal directly with public funding, be it from the OPCA's or other state bodies such as Pôle Emploi. For the moment those who work as sub-contractors for language schools or salariés, in whatever form, for higher education institutions are not affected.
