HEE TEL Survey

HEE TEL recently wrote to you asking you to complete a TEL Forums follow up survey, to capture information that we didn’t have time to cover during the September TEL Forum meetings.

The response to this has been very valuable and so we have decided to keep the survey open in the run up to the next TEL Forums in January, where we will present some of the results so far. If you haven’t yet completed the survey, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Thank you very much for your continued support and we look forward to more collaboration in 2022.
