The Experience

Prior to Covid-19 the NCE has always focused on selecting venues to ensure that our learners will feel relaxed as they are removed from the daily demands placed upon them. The environment brings the time and space to absorb, reflect and fully digest the extensive content delivered throughout. During the past year we have strived to create engaging online events that deliver as much of the same approach as possible. As the situation develops we will aim to get back to meeting in our exceptional venues and delivering for our learners.
