The Magpie Webinars 

free monthly CPD for SLTs

Welcome to the home page for the Magpie Webinar series which has evolved from the Magpies #SLT2B Project. Due to popular demand, a selection of the most popular webinars will be running as the Magpie Summer CPD Specials and are open to all Speech and Language Therapists, SLT Assistants and SLT2B Students.  If you’d like to see what the buzz is about, do join us!


Each month we select a charity which is important to the guest speaker and invite SLTs attending the webinar or watching on catch up to make a small donation in acknowledgement.  Since the first Magpie webinar in July we have raised over £1500 for the charities.

If you've missed out on a previous Magpie webinar that interests you, don't worry!  You can sign up below for access to the replay - no charge, but we encourage you to make a donation to the chosen charity in recognition of this FREE CPD opportunity.
