November 3-4, 2017 - Riffa Views International School, Bahrain

NESA's Fall Training Institute is a specialty conference for educators. The program is based on an "extended institute design" so that delegates are together with the same presenter for the entire two-day conference. This format allows time for skill development, in-depth exploration and the establishment of partnerships/networks.
