If you have registered for tomorrow's Further Education Briefing, you'll be notified by email, but as an added precaution, here's the news:

With the poor weather conditions, and the likelihood of further severe train and traffic disruption, we have decided to postpone tomorrow’s Microsoft Further Education Briefing in Reading until the New Year.

It is unfortunate that we have been forced to make this change, but we have attendees registered from a wide area, and many of them have already been advising us that they are unable to attend due to the snow difficulties.

Although we cannot continue with the event at Reading, what we will be doing is:

Live Meeting Friday 3rd December

At 9:30-10:30am and 10:45-11:45 tomorrow (Friday) we will run the two case study sessions – with Brockenhurst and Leicester Colleges – as an online Live Meeting.
You are able to join those online meeting, without pre-registration, by using the link below:

Re-scheduled Briefing

We will re-schedule the full Further Education Briefing event in February 2011, and send all registered attendees a priority booking link by email.

I apologise if this late cancellation will cause you any difficulty. We reviewed the decision first thing this morning, and at that time the conditions looked like they might improve. But over the course of this morning, it’s become clear that travel conditions by road and public transport will make it very difficult for the majority of attendees. We hope that you will be able to join the Live Meeting tomorrow, to hear from the two colleges, and we look forward to welcoming you in February to the re-arranged event.
