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.
The Magpie #SLT2B project is a lockdown project allowing pre-registration/student SLTs to meet and learn from experienced clinicians in the absence of clinical placements. From its inception in March 2020, over 150 webinars have taken place with over 1000 students from across the UK and Ireland signed up to take part. The webinars are paired with a thriving Facebook community of members, dedicated to clinical learning opportunities.
The #SLT2B project and the Magpies CPD Webinars are spearheaded by Amy Stephens, a Consultant SLT and Advanced Ayres Sensory Integration Practitioner. With many years experience in designing and hosting online learning, Amy is passionate about inspiring people to learn and grow, clients and therapists alike!
