Our first Higher and Further Education Conference takes place in June

Join us at English UK's first Higher and Further Education Conference, on Friday 14 June in Birmingham. Discuss the future of state sector ELT provision and connect with peers facing similar challenges.

Topics and speakers

  • Transition, retention and progression, what role can we play in our international student's journey, with Jo Parfitt and Lisa Langley (Swansea University)

    Behind each of the international students sitting in our classes, there is a story. Why are they here? What are they going to do next? How can we help them be successful? We will look at the student journey from pre-arrival through to graduation and beyond. 

  • Data insights for HE/FE providers - with discussion on future developments in data collection, with Ivana Bartosik (BONARD)

  • Panel discussion: how ELT departments can add value to institutions and support student learning, with Will Nash (University of Sheffield), Hayley Maxwell (University of Birmingham) and Victoria Paterson (Edinburgh College)

  • The future direction of the Accreditation UK scheme for the state sector, with George Pickering

  • Member showcases: 3 x 15 minute presentations on new course developments and innovations

  • FE college case study: how to run English plus vocational programmes, with Harriet Petty and Victoria Paterson (Edinburgh College)
