Dr Philip Augar - Chair, Independent Panel, Post-18 Education Funding Review

Who better to provide detailed insight into the funding review and what this means for Post-18 funding than Philip, having led the biggest review in Post-18 education in decades.

Having only made a few conference appearances this year, AoC Annual Conference has been selected as the ideal setting to hear his reflections on the panels recommendations and what this means for the sector.
