Event description

Description

Reducing workloads, increasing efficiency and growth are all major challenges facing Further Education as it continues to navigate its way through a period of unprecedented change. National policy combined with wider market forces and global trends are highlighting the increasing necessity for continual innovation aligned to preparing people for the world of now and the future.

The Further Education Good Practice Symposium is a one day event bringing together leading voices with responsibility for digital transformation and is especially relevant for roles that include technology, teaching and learning, the learner journey and wider support services from the whole of the Further Education community.

Keynotes at the event include best selling author David Price OBE, the driving force behind FELTAG Bob Harrison and leading educators providing insights and perspectives on using technology to secure sustainability, enhance learning outcomes, reduce workloads and enhance professional practice.

We recommend that each College brings at least two delegates to the event with a maximum of four attendees per College.
