RSP Summer School 2010

2nd June 2010 - 4th June 2010

Madingley Hall, Madingley, Cambridge, CB23 8AQ

The school provides an opportunity to keep up to date with the latest developments away from the pressures of the workplace. Particpants will be able to develop helpful ideas and strategies which they can apply to their day to day work. The comfortable surroundings encourage networking during formal sessions and also in a social environment in the evening .

Madingley Hall, just four miles from Cambridge, is a Tudor House once home to Edward, Prince of Wales and is surrounded by magnificent historic gardens designed by Capability Brown.

The event is subsidised by the RSP. Places cost just £99 per person, including two nights B&B, lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and evening meals on Wednesday and Thursday. Due to high demand, places are initially limited to one delegate per repository/institution. However, we will operate a reserve list should places become available due to cancellation. The online application form should be also used to book a place on the reserve list. The closing date for applications is Monday 17th May 2010 and applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application no later than Friday 21st May.
