The higher and further education sectors have been anticipating the publication of the post-18 education and funding review for many months, and the wait is now over. But publication of the recommendations is in many ways just the start – what happens after Augar?
The government has suggested that there will be some form of consultation and a period of reflection before it formally responds to the review - and that provides scope for universities to engage ahead of its implementation.
Delegates will hear from stakeholders from across the post-18 education landscape to consider the impact of the proposed changes for all four nations of the UK. We will look at what students think about the proposals and what applicants need to know about from your marketing and communications. Industries and employers that will be affected by the review's recommendations will also share their views. And there will be a chance to discuss the opportunities that are posed within the recommendations.
This one-day conference will dissect what the recommendations might mean for universities and students, examine how the government might take these recommendations forward into policy, and explore ways for the sector to shape what happens next.
We are delighted that our speakers will include Chris Skidmore MP, Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation and Interim Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth. Please see the agenda tab for further details of our speakers.
This course is aimed at anyone whose role brings them into contact with strategy, planning and policy, advising senior leaders, and student and stakeholder engagement – including public/political affairs.
Anyone with an interest in this topic is welcome to attend, however job roles which may find this event particularly useful are:
