Your Education Conference Briefing

Hello to everyone at Autumn Federal Lib Dem Conference!

Each autumn, we publish a short booklet with education ideas from our members and friends. You can view and download this year’s booklet below.

Although we have had print editions of the booklet in the past, we have held off having a print run due to the lack of a distribution network during the pandemic. We are hoping to release an updated and revised edition of this booklet in print early next year.
