Sponsorship is now open for emfec’s next annual conference, Innovation in FE: Embracing Devolution, which will be taking place on 8 February 2016 at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.

Further education is at the centre of one of the most significant changes to local Government in decades. With increasing powers devolved to local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), FE provision is being restructured and reshaped to meet local economic needs.

Further education in the East Midlands now sits at the heart of the “Midlands Engine”, a regional commitment to rival that of the “Northern Powerhouse”, with skills high on the agenda for regional growth.

The conference will be made up of 200 delegates from across the FE landscape - principals, governors, independent training providers, skills leads, and more - to join together to discuss, debate and explore the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in further education.

emfec has a variety of sponsorship packages available to organisations who want to be involved in the event and to show their support for the further education and skills sector. If you are interested in any of the below packages, please get in touch via marketing@emfec.co.uk or 0115 854 1398 to express your interest.
