Upcoming Webinars & Events

In these unprecedented times due to the impact of Covid-19 we have had a major shift in how we deliver our topical events. We are delighted to say that we have vastly expanded our webinar capabilities, providing our members with the most up-to-date information including key developments within the sector. As an integral part of AELP’s membership offering members do, of course, receive significantly reduced delegate fees to attend, indeed, many of our webinars are offered complimentary including regular updates from AELP’s Chief Policy Officer, Simon Ashworth. 


The partners we have with for this initiative include the Department for Education, Education and Skills Funding Agency, Ofsted and the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education to ensure that our webinars keep you one step ahead of any significant announcements and changes in the sector.


These one hour webinars offer the opportunity to listen to the latest news and sector developments from the comfort of your home or office. The recording of the webinar, presentation slides and any Q&As are often sent out post-webinar and are another valuable resource for your organisation. If you couldn't attend a live webinar or missed the chance to register you can purchase the whole package afterwards. Click here to access Webinar Recordings On Demand »

AELP continues to receive excellent feedback on our webinars and is proud to deliver this service for our members.


AELP Member Exclusive Meetings - all sector forum and special interest group meetings are now being held on-line via GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar.

Rod Natkiel, formerly CEO of Work Experience quality assurance organisation, Fair Train, explores the serious impact on work-based learning, i.e. placements ranging from school work experience to apprenticeships, that the COVID pandemic has had. In the majority of sectors, the activity has come to a standstill. Unsurprisingly, this has accelerated the advent of virtual work experience, and with that comes the increasingly heated debate: “Can ‘virtual’ ever be real Work Experience?”.
