***Sponsored Free Places Available. See FAQ at bottom of this listing***

We are very pleased to announce our 4th Reimagining Further Education conference with the theme #FESpeaks. Join us for a thought-provoking day and opportunity to reimagine FE policy and practice.

At #ReimagineFE, we are subverting what ‘centre stage’ means. Our focus is not on the people at the front, but the people in the seats: educators, leaders, and researchers. This year, our speakers will be not ‘keynotes’ but provocateurs, and when they stop speaking, the real work begins—and that’s all down to you. Working groups are the collaborative spaces where we are tasked with re-thinking our approach to key challenges facing particular areas of the broader FE provision. These dynamic groups ask hard questions and innovate with new visions and approaches.

When booking tickets, you will choose a single Working Group with whom you will remain for both the morning AND afternoon sessions. While we appreciate that you may be interested in more than one group, this format allows delegates to develop a solid partnership capable of identifying barriers and devising approaches to overcome them, both in their own practice as well as when engaging policy makers.

Coffee/tea on arrival, lunch and afternoon coffee/tea are included in the ticket price.

A list of the Working Groups and their convenors appears below; more detailed information on the topics to be discussed in each group can be found at our website: https://reimaginefe.wordpress.com/working-groups-for-reimaginefe19/

FAQs

Tell me about your free sponsored places.

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is kindly funding 20 free places for practitioners teaching or training in either Adult Community Learning or Offender Learning settings. There are a further limited number of free places available to any practitioner in the broader FE sector whose employing organisations will not fund them to attend the conference. Please send a brief email to Suzanne Savage (Suzanne.savage@bcu.ac.uk) explaining your position, the Working Group you are interested in, and what you hope to gain from attending the conference. Note that these places are for the ticket cost only (including refreshments and lunch) but you are responsible for the costs of travel.

How do I get there with public transport?

Three train stations are a short walking distance from the Curzon Building at our City Centre campus. Please click here for map and walking directions.

Is there parking?

Public parking is available at Millennium Point car park (postcode B4 7AP) which is across the street from the conference venue. Parking is charged by the hour and is £6.00 for 12 hours. Please click here for a map and further directions.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email Suzanne Savage Suzanne.savage@bcu.ac.uk

How do I sign up for more than one Working Group?

Unlike other conferences where you may attend several different sessions, #ReimagineFE19 is built around the idea of Working Groups which stay together for both the morning and afternoon sessions. While this does limit the amount of topics you can participate in, this format facilitates stronger group cohesion and greater depth of dialogue to reimagine key areas of further education.
