Reminder: New ERA Conference (Plus Change of Venue)

This is a reminder about the half-day New ERA conference to be held on Thursday (December 3rd). The venue for Thursday's conference has been changed to the Stillorgan Park Hotel. If you get the 46A, the Stillorgan Park Hotel is just a few more stops after UCD. A map is available here.

The study examines the performance of the New ERA programme across 3 domains: increased access from disadvantaged school, retention rates and overall exam performance.
