HE in FE: exploring new challenges and opportunties
The government’s white paper “Students at the heart of the system” was published in June 2011 and proposed changes to four key areas: reforming funding, delivering a better student experience, enabling universities to improve social mobility and reducing regulation. It also proposed to expand numbers and enable a much wider range of providers, including FE colleges.
The Guardian's new seminar, in partnership with the College Marketing Network, will explore the opportunities and challenges of HE in FE and help you refine your strategies for recruiting more students. With a marketing and communications focus, delegates will come away with fresh insight into how to communicate their unique HE offer.
This intensive and fast-paced seminar will finish with a networking lunch.
