Event description

Description

AAC 2018 is the calendar’s one truly not-to-be-missed three-day policy and practice conference dedicated to apprenticeships. On the back of the tremendous success of AAC 2015, 2016 and 2017, the fourth Annual Apprenticeship Conference and Exhibition is set to be the biggest event yet. Across the three days, delegates will have access to more than 100 workshops, 50 exhibitors, top policy officials and sector experts. Senior staff from colleges, training providers, universities, employers and assessment organisations will all have access to business-critical news, advice and keynotes.

In an event covering the whole apprenticeship sector, we don’t have time to adequately cover issues at sector level, so this year we’ll be doing something about that. For 6 key sectors, taken from the 15 routes that will be at the forefront of the government’s plans for technical education, we will host a mini-conference hosted within AAC.

Delegates at these subject summits will be able to join AAC delegates for the main plenary sessions, networking and refreshments, but they will also experience workshops tailored to their sector. You can select to apply for priority booking at the events when registering for the conference. Places are limited to 250 people per day at the subject summits and are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

For 2018, we are also making the exhibition element to the event free to attend. This will include at least nine free-to-attend seminars for exhibition attendees. Please note that lunch is not provided for exhibition attendees, but will be available for purchase on the day.

Our programme will be announced from December 2017. In the meantime please visit the AAC website for more information: http://feweekaac.com
