Reimagining Further Education

University event offered by Birmingham City University

Event Summary:

Our ‘Reimagining Further Education’ conference will bring together practitioners, researchers and key figures in the field of Further Education (FE) and will cover a range of themes from apprenticeships and work-based learning to accountability and governance in FE.

Full Event Details:

In keeping with the event’s title, 'Reimagining Further Education', the conference format is designed to maximise opportunities for collaboration and interaction amongst all those present.

Instead of the conventional ‘stand and deliver’ format of many conferences, 'Reimagining Further Education' will be organised as group conversations framed and facilitated by a discussant and chair for each of the 6 thematic strands included. By exploring positive, imaginative and creative ways forward that enhance agency, workforce development and the professional ethos of all FE practitioners, this conference aims to put the ‘confer’ back into conference!

There will be a natural link between morning and afternoon sessions (strand conversations 1 and 2), with the focus in the morning being on the ‘where we are now’ and the current issues facing the sector and the afternoon on the ‘where do we want to be’ and the pre-conditions that would facilitate this. We are therefore recommending that delegates choose their preferred strand and remain in this strand throughout the day.

Tickets

Tickets are available at a cost of £50, which includes entry to the full programme, a conference pack, lunch and refreshments. Spaces are limited so tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We anticipate this is likely to be a popular event so you are advised to book early to avoid missing out on a place.
