CPRE National Office induction days are held three times a year at our office in London and are open to any new staff and volunteers who would like to attend from the CPRE network of districts, branches and regions. Induction days focus on the role of National Office and CPRE's overarching structure, ambitions, operations and resources across the organisation.

These induction days are an excellent opportunity to learn about CPRE as a national organisation. We look at the history and structure of CPRE, the role of National Office and how we operate (including communications, fundraising, membership and development), key areas of our campaigning work, and the resources available to branches. The day is a great way to get a few ideas for your work at the grassroots of CPRE and to meet people from other branches as well as national office staff whom you can ask questions throughout the day.

The three dates for the 2018 induction days will be:

Tuesday 30th January
Tuesday 22nd May
Tuesday 11th September
