ACF’s Professional Development Programme 2019 will connect you with current good practice in the foundation sector, supporting you to develop your expertise. Our seminars create a space where your questions can be answered – either through discussion with peers, with external experts, or learning from leading practitioners working in the field. 

We are delighted to include four brand new seminars in this years’ programme in response to feedback from members, as well as what we think is important to be considered:

  • Introduction to digital
  • Your digital capacity
  • Making fair decisions in grant assessing
  • Safeguarding and due diligence


All seminars that run over the lunch period (12–2pm) will include a light buffet lunch.
