Conference for Teachers and Advisers
Friday 8th June 2018
This annual free conference is for teachers, managers and advisers at schools and colleges, who have responsibility for supporting students applying to university.
Through keynote speakers, plenaries and workshops we explored current issues in admissions, recruitment and outreach. Delegates were equipped with updated practical information to take back to their workplace, for colleagues and learners. This included information on entry requirements, graduate outcomes, student finance, subject range and choices and the impact of changes to framework in both sectors.
