The largest event in further education

19-20 November ICC, Birmingham

We will be bringing together some of the biggest names from further education, business, government, and beyond to inform your thinking, to challenge you and give you the opportunity to discuss and debate the biggest issues and opportunities for colleges and the country.

This year’s conference will focus on whole college health – from working culture to finances, curriculum to student and staff well-being. You will go back to your organisation with practical solutions, inspirational stories and fresh thinking to embed and share with your colleagues and students.

NEW THIS YEAR

You will benefit from practical content relevant to your role and challenges you face. We have streamlined our offer so there is content tailored to you, whatever your role. We will also be introducing a new programme for student governors. Look out for more information on this soon.

 
Once again the Conference exceeded expectations. Lots of learning, networking and fresh thinking. Stories that moved and ideas that invigorated. A really busy but beneficial two days.

The AoC Annual Conference always delivers. It allows me to fill in or confirm my understanding of the prevailing key issues affecting the sector.
