With rising costs significantly impacting the skills sector and Ofsted’s plans to inspect all providers by 2025 well underway, we’re delighted that AELP Autumn Conference 2023 will be returning to Manchester on 31 October.

Kindly sponsored by City & Guilds, AELP Autumn Conference will deliver a fast-paced and interesting programme, with a great line-up of high-level speakers from across the sector. You can expect these speakers to focus on three main themes funding; quality; and the skills system. There will also be the opportunity to hear vital updates on each of these from key officials and experts. If you work in post-16 education, skills and training and want to overcome, adapt and achieve during this difficult time for the sector, ensure you don’t miss out!

This is a crucial time for the further education sector so once again this will be one of the must-attend strategic events to attend this year.

Who's  Attending?

The conference is for all those working in post 16 education, skills and training including all training providers, colleges, policy makers and consultants who want to keep their competitive advantage by finding out the latest developments in the sector should attend.
