ABC Awards Centres are being offered a special rate to emfec group’s annual conference, Innovation in FE: Embracing Devolution.

The conference, taking place on 8 February 2016, will explore innovative ways colleges and training providers can respond to local government changes, including devolution bids and Area Reviews.

With increasing powers devolved to local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), further education provision is being restructured and reshaped to meet local economic needs and it is important for colleges and training providers across the UK to keep up with the latest policy changes and demands.

With a workshop dedicated specifically to ABC Awards Centres, the conference will be the perfect opportunity to get to grips with the latest changes, network with colleagues and stakeholders, and hear from politicians and sector representatives about the future of FE provision.

The conference will also offer a variety of workshops for a wide range of delegates, including a session led by Policy Connect about developing innovation in further education, and a workshop about engaging students in policy making, led by the National Union of Students (NUS).

ABC Awards Centres have the opportunity to attend the conference at the emfec member rate of £90 per person. Plus, if you book your place before the end of December, you’ll be entitled to an additional 15% off all bookings.

If you’re interested or concerned in any way about the future economic and skills landscape and would like to hear first-hand what is being done to support you through these significant changes, then this conference is for you.
