I had in my notes that the next meeting was to be scheduled October 28? Is this confirmed and time? If the agenda hasn't been set yet we would to showcase our plans at CEDP to roll out 22 new VET courses across the diocese via Blueprints and get feedback from the community on some of our design features (especially the best ways to monitor competencies).


Hi @dsheil1 We do apologize for the confusion. We will be hosting the proposed October 28th webinar on November 4th @ 10am AEDT. You can register HERE.
