Seminar adroddiadau Rhwydwaith Tystiolaeth Gydweithredol (CEN)
Collaborative Evidence Network (CEN) reports seminars

From January 2023, we will be holding a series of online seminars to showcase and disseminate the main findings from the Collaborative Evidence Network (CEN) reports. The eighteen collaborative research projects, involving HEIs and other organisations, looked at impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of the education system and on particular groups of learners. They also looked at ways to mitigate those impacts, as well as ways practitioners and learners can be better supported going forwards.


Below we list the agenda for the first seminar and the planned schedule for the rest of the seminar series. The precise dates for future seminars are subject to change depending on when reports are able to be published.
