The College of Animal Welfare

About

TP Congress is a unique conference aimed at clinical coaches wishing to develop the key role they play in the professional development of their students.  The conference has continuously developed year on year and, as such, has developed into the largest event of its kind, dedicated purely to supporting clinical coaches in practice.

This year's event will include lectures on well-being for your team and your students; as well as lectures on the Nursing Progress Log (NPL), updates on the VN Futures project, advice on legal obligations, and tips on supporting your students through assignment writing and exams.

We have secured a variety of leading speakers from both inside and outside of the veterinary profession to keep this years’ agenda fresh and current, so come along to listen and learn!

TP Congress is also an RCVS- recognised clinical coach standardisation event and can be counted towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours. Furthermore, it is an excellent opportunity to network with fellow delegates and speakers from the veterinary field in attendance.

Furthermore, due to the fantastic feedback we received about last year’s venue, we are returning to the wonderful Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa right next door to the historic Silverstone racetrack. Onsite accommodation is available for those looking to stay overnight, and a discounted room and evening meal rate is available for TP Congress delegates. We look forward to seeing you there!

What people thought of TPC 2016:

  • I really enjoyed TP Congress – I think it’s so important for people to understand how to motivate and inspire colleagues especially trainees.  To see the motivational Coaches at Congress was excellent – this should be part of any training/education and work place criteria.
  • Great to speak with other Clinical Coaches and share experiences and great lectures get you thinking outside the box.
  • Have come for the last 3 years and it is getting better and better.
  • Fantastic lectures, interesting and very relevant.

Next years' agenda has yet to be confirmed.

Interested in exhibiting at TP Congress?

TP Congress is a unique congress aimed at clinical coaches working in veterinary practice wishing to develop the key role they play in the professional development of their student veterinary nurses. The congress has continuously developed year on year and, as such, has developed into the largest event of its kind.

Why exhibit with us?

  • Limited exhibitor numbers - Unlike larger congresses where hundreds of exhibitors often mean that visitors will not remember everyone, exhibition space for these events is strictly limited. As such you will get the opportunity to engage with all of the delegates attending our congresses personally.
  • Make meaningful business connections – Network with those that influence decision making in veterinary practice face-to-face and make relevant industry contacts.
  • Cost effective – with exhibitor packages starting from just £250+VAT, our prices offer value for money and fall considerably below that of larger events within the industry.

There's still time to book exhibition space! Download a booking form or call Tracey Croucher, Short Course and Events Manager, on 01480 422060.
