#YSFConnect Event

This CPD and networking event is open to all those working in the sport and physical activity sector across South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. As yet they have no-one attending from Bradford so it would be great to get some people booked on.

If you have any apprentices, then there is a specific session just for them where they can meet others in similar roles. All spaces MUST be booked in advance!
