It’s that time of year again when College Chief Executives, Principals, Chairs, Governors, Clerks, and Senior Management from Colleges and institutions across the UK gather to discuss the current and emerging government policies within Further Education and potentially influence them.

This year the agenda covers a range of compelling subject areas to ignite discussion around core industry ideas. For example implementation of 24+ students loans; the changes to funding for 16-18 year olds; and how your budgets for 19+ students will be handled after the Spending Review. This year there will be an emphasis on feedback and delegates will be one of the key players helping one million young people in the 16 to 24-year-age group currently out of education, employment or training, change their future.
The following organisations and departments will be in attendance:

  • Further Education Colleges
  • Sixth Form Colleges
  • Higher Education Institutions
  • Adult Learning Providers
  • Training Providers
  • Local Education Authorities
  • Government Departments and Agencies
  • Awarding Bodies
  • Sector Skills Councils
  • International Colleges

The exhibition will give delegates an opportunity to engage with over 100 suppliers from the College arena in a relaxed environment. Microsoft and Intel are pleased to be exhibiting over the 3 days and if you are planning come along we encourage you to come and say hello.

Mike Morris, Head of Further Education at Microsoft and Julie Penman from the UK and Education team at Intel would be delighted to meet you at Stand F14.
