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 CEO Mark Dawe. These invaluable updates from Mark have been extended to run weekly for the foreseeable future.


The partnerships we have with government agencies including; Ofsted, the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education and the Department for Education ensure 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.
