This meeting of sparqs’ National Education Officers’ Network (NEON) continued our series of half-day meetings for education officers. NEON was set up in 2019 in response to feedback from student officers who expressed the need for a national officer network with members from both universities and colleges.
The network is designed to be a space for officers to network and work on issues together in a cross-sector capacity. This event is aimed at student officers with education remits from colleges and universities across Scotland.
