AELP’s events, conferences and webinars are important in providing our members with the most up-to-date information and include 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. Many of our webinars are offered complimentary including a monthly update from AELP’s CEO Mark Dawe.
Our experienced events team deliver around 150 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 £575.00 - 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 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 continues to receive excellent feedback on our events and is proud to deliver this service for our members.
Higher Degree Level Special Interest Group
Date published: 24.10.2018
The AELP Higher Level Skills SIG aims to create a forum in which members can consider the opportunities available to providers wishing to develop a portfolio of provision at higher or degree level. The meetings will also capture the views and common interest of members already involved in the development and delivery of provision at this level that can help to inform AELP’s view on key policy issues.
