Continuing Professional Development

At EL, we feel strongly that learning never ends. We are continually discovering, progressing and growing, and we have once monthly meetings on a range of fascinating topics, bringing in speakers from all walks of life, including philosophers, writers, business leaders, doctors, artists, activists and psychotherapists. Our meetings are lively, intensely engaging, and connect us to the world in a vibrant, life-enhancing way that is core to our ethos. For the time being, all CPD events will take place online.
