Welcome to ABCD Europe

Hello All,

I hope this message finds you well. On behalf of the ABCD Europe site team, i'd like to thank everyone for their contribution to the learning community. From conversations with practitioners, it is clear we've outgrown this existing platform. We are excited to share a new platform (link shared below) and we hope you'll join us. 

This platform will close on 31st March 2017

For some years Nurture Development in partnership with ABCD Institute has supported the ABCD Europe community site using the Ning platform. This site has engaged 500 ABCD practitioners in sharing news, ideas and stories. Over time the landscape for ABCD in Europe has grown larger and more diverse. ABCD practitioners have grown in depth and skills and it is time for us to build a new place for online conversation and sharing.

As we move to our new site at we hope that you will continue this journey with us and share thoughts about our experiences using The new platform is one we are creating ourselves rather using a commercial provider. It will have a renewed focus on sharing stories, learning, materials, offering community space and helping ABCD learners and practitioners meet and make new connections.

So the new learning commons can grow and develop we'd ask you if could spare a few minutes to provide some reflection and feedback on the ABCD Europe Ning: ABCD Europe / ABCD Learning Commons Survey

Some housekeeping before we close the doors;

  • Content will not draw across to the learning commons, we ask that you download any content you wish to keep. 
  • Membership details will not directly transfer, we ask that you take the time to create a new account on the learning commons. 

We look forward to seeing you on the learning commons shortly,

The Nurture Development Team.
