UCULeft’s Autumn Conference – “Preparing to Win: Post-16 Education for All” will take place on Saturday 18th November 2017.
Venue: SOAS, Paul Webley Wing, Senate House, North Block, Torrington Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HX – see map
With the Conservative Government increasingly looking unable to govern the country, the Labour Party is waiting to form the next government. Labour’s radical manifesto contains many post-16 education polices developed by UCU. This conference will look at developing education policy in anticipation of a future Labour government.
The conference will look at a wide range of areas covered by post-16 education to discuss and design policy that will ensure a progressive Further and Higher Education sector is developed that allows access for all.
The conference will look at apprenticeships, more relevant and inspiring curriculum and the role of adult education in Further Education. The conference will discuss how we can undo the marketisation of Higher Education.
One of the main themes of the conference this year will be the issues of the public sector pay cap and how we can build a movement to get the cap lifted.
Full timetable with list of speakers, panel guests and workshops will be available soon.
