Be part of the conference
Students are an integral part of our conference and the showcases offer a chance to celebrate the great work that goes on in our member Colleges.
You know your students better than we do, so tell us what they can do! We are open to all ideas, including skills showcases, performances and on-site assistance at the conference itself. To get involved all you need to do is to propose a student showcase.
Closing date for submissions is Friday 3 August 2012
Throughout the conference, delegates will explore the key national issues facing the sector and share best practice at a series of high quality breakout sessions, designed to challenge, inspire and provoke discussion and debate.
