AELP’s events, conferences and webinars are key in providing members with the most up-to-date and key developments within the sector and are an integral part of AELP’s membership offering. Members do, of course, receive significantly reduced delegate fees to attend.
Our experienced events team deliver over 100 events per year, including three annual conferences; Spring, Autumn and during the summer, our two-day National Conference which is a must-attend key strategic event within the Skills and Employability sector calendar delivering to nearly 600 attendees per day. Full AELP members receive one complimentary place to attend both days which is worth over £560.00 - a significant saving when compared to many of our membership fees.
Events are topical and delivered by high profile and experienced speakers or facilitators and always provide a great opportunity to network with other members. Ranging in size and type they are often delivered around the country bringing the event closer to you.
The partnerships we have with government agencies including; Ofsted, the Institute for Apprenticeships and the Department for Education ensure our events keep you one step ahead of any significant announcements and changes in the sector.
Alongside our events, AELP also frequently deliver one hour webinars which offer the opportunity to listen to the latest news and sector developments from the comfort of your 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.
AELP receives excellent feedback on all our events and is proud to deliver this service for our members.
Ofsted continues to play a very important part in the further education and skills system. Inspection can be a major 'make or break' event. Understanding how Ofsted looks at things, its latest thinking, and where its concerns lie, is important for all of us.
