East Midlands Conference Centre

Join us at our conference on 16 May 2018. The conference will take a focused and honest look at the further education and skills sector as it continues to demonstrate innovation and resilience, to meet the challenges of the economic and skills landscape. Be part of the debate and have your say on key issues such as apprenticeships, social mobility and the latest reforms to the sector in the shape of further technical education.

The conference promises to provide a platform to learn, network and collaborate with senior civil servants from government departments, politicians and sector representatives through seminars and interactive workshops. It’s also an excellent opportunity to connect with other like minded individuals from across the education and skills sector.

The conference under the patronage of ABC Awards, Certa and emfec, will be Chaired by former Member of Parliament and Minister, Jonathan Shaw.
