DNA Next Steps

Welcome to your DNA Bootcamp Next Steps Hub page



We advise that you bookmark this web page as you will find it useful through the duration of the course. To this page we will be adding:

  •  the recordings & the handouts to this page.
  • the Zoom links for the follow up meetings (for weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 of the course).

Please note:

  • The recordings and handouts will remain accessible on this web page until 30 September 2022.

  • The contents of this web page are exclusively for usage by students on the DNA Bootcamp Next Steps course. Please do not share this web link with others.

  • For the webinars (weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7 of the course) you will have been emailed an individual Zoom link. The webinars start at 7pm UK time (BST). Do not share it with anyone as the link only allows one person to use it at a time. If you need it resending, please email [email protected].

We hope the above answers your questions and look forward to filling the web page with plenty of useful DNA material over the coming weeks.

Yours Michelle & Helen
