National Education Officers' Network meeting


This meeting of sparqs’ National Education Officers’ Network (NEON) continued our series of meetings for academic year 2023-24.   

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.

It is designed to be a space for officers to network and work on issues together in a cross-sector capacity. This events are aimed at student officers with education remits from colleges and universities across Scotland.

Timings and practical details

The event ran from 10.00am to 1.00pm, with registration open from 9.45am.  It was free to attend and took place online through Zoom – joining instructions were sent out to those who registered. 

As we were not constrained by venue size, there was no limit to the number of participants from institutions. Delegates were still required to register, though, so we knew numbers and could keep the event secure.
