Event description
This year we're hosting a hybrid event with live speakers, delegates & exhibitors plus online attendees to ensure we run a Covid-safe event.

About this event

This year our headline sponsor is Aptem. Aptem specialises in developing pioneering technology solutions for the vocational training, further education and employment services sectors and an increasing number of universities are using Aptem products to support programme management and ensure quality of provision.

Our theme this year is HE Post Covid – How technical, higher technical education, Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, professional education and work-based learning programmes will contribute to economic recovery and social mobility.

Coverage will include:

1. Progression from T Levels/Applied Generals to Higher Education – implications for HE recruitment and access and participation of underrepresented cohorts

2. The role of HE in the development and delivery of Higher Technical Qualifications – funding prioritisation, the Quality Mark process, articulation and competition with bachelor’s programmes, delivery partnerships, Institutes of Technology and projected growth

3. Development and use of Higher and Degree Apprenticeship – going for growth, future trends, policy and operational developments, productivity, social mobility, levelling-up, diversity and keeping ahead of the game

4. Lifetime Skills Guarantee, Credit Accumulation and Transfer in the 2020s and the Place of HE in the Government’s Approach to Skills Provision

5. National skills policy, regional devolution and national, regional and local skills needs

And what does the above mean for the “traditional” HE offer?

Organiser University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC)

Organiser of UVAC National Conference 2021: Higher Education Post Covid

The University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC) was formed in 1999 as a not-for-profit representative and support organisation by the HE sector and is run by the HE sector for the HE sector. We provide an independent voice for our members on matters relating to technical and professional higher level learning including higher and degree apprenticeship. Our mission is to champion higher level vocational learning and exists to support Higher Education Institutions play a full role in the delivery of skills, apprenticeship, technical education and professional education provision.

UVAC has a membership of approximately 90, including universities of all types, sizes and mission groups, higher education institutions, awarding and professional bodies, tech ed businesses and individuals.

We believe in:

  • The importance of meeting the higher vocational learning needs of individuals and employers
  • The validity of work-based routes into practical, work-applied higher education – with no artificial barriers
  • The value of experiential and reflective learning
  • The value of work-based and work-related higher education learning

Our activities:

  • We work with our members and others to influence the quality and value of higher vocational learning
  • We research, provide information and organise events to support our aims
  • We support the recognition of prior learning and the national application of credit and transfer between educational institutions
  • We work with educational institutions, employers, governments and national agencies to enhance graduate employability and progression

The UVAC agenda is of greater significance to the HE sector than any time in the last twenty years.
