All discount offers have now expired, but we have a small handful of places left. Don't miss out on what will be an extraordinary event for further education.
The Further Education Sector is at a crossroads! In the era of austerity, significant changes are planned for the funding, structure and staffing of the sector. Colleges face another round of business re-organisation. Teaching contracts become more casualised. A new Common Inspection Framework marks a stronger call for self-regulation and teacher improvement. FE professionalism is back under the microscope!
But before we go too far, shouldn't we be asking if this is the right direction? What is the future purpose of FE? What role do our leaders and politicians need to play? What sort of workforce is required? Will these changes enhance or compromise quality? Do we have a clear vision of what is required? Is this vision sustainable? This is the big FE conversation! It's time to discuss 'The Future of Further Education'.
This Conference presents a significant opportunity for teachers, managers, researchers and politicians to come together under one roof to discuss changes to the FE sector, its workforce and teaching practices.
Attend this event if you wish to:
- Examine the impact of government post-16 education policy on future FE funding and curriculum priorities
- Discuss the efficacy of pursuing a 'measurement agenda' as the basis for improving teaching and learning in FE
- Evaluate examples of successful improvement and change management in Grade 1 colleges
- Discuss what 'quality' and 'outstanding teaching' means under the new common inspection framework
- Consider inspirational strategies for developing high student achievement and engagement
- Discuss better ways of recruiting, motivating and rewarding FE teachers
This event should be a 'diary-must' for colleges in the new age of austerity!
Who Should Attend
This event is designed for principals, senior managers, heads of department, staff development managers, quality managers, advanced practitioners, teacher trainers and teachers with course leadership responsibilities.
Keynote speakers Michael Portillo and Emeritus Professor Frank Coffield will offer two inspirational perspectives on recent educational developments that have impacted on the FE sector, and how these are/will be shaping institutional priorities and business management practices. This will be followed by a 'Question-Time' panel discussion with a number of 'expert commentators' on FE policy and practice, and will be open to audience participation. Finally, there will be a series of specialist seminar-style workshops for teaching and management audiences based on the theme of 'outstanding teaching'.
