AELP National Conference 2021

9th & 10th June, Novotel London West 


The June 2021 rescheduling of the AELP National Conference will be the ideal time to review and debate the effectiveness of skills and employment programmes which have been put in place to support the post Covid-19 economic recovery.

The AELP National Conference will consider:

  • How effective has the post-Covid response been so far and what can be done better?
  • Are the flexibilities in the delivery of new skills here to stay?
  • Ofsted inspecting again – what to look out for
  • A centralised or devolved approach – time to make a proper judgement call?
  • Does the new landscape require a fresh regulatory approach?
  • What impact will the promised FE reforms have on the whole sector?
  • Have providers done enough to promote diversity in the workplace?

Join 500 delegates for the flagship skills conference of the year to hear top government speakers, employers and providers plot the way ahead.

An excellent range of workshops in addition to top-level representation on the plenary sessions makes the AELP National Conference another event that you cannot afford to miss! 


The AELP National Conference 2021 will be held for the seventh time at the 4* Novotel London West, Hammersmith.
The hotel has some of the largest conference facilities in the area and can cater for up to 1000 delegates - no other conference, event, convention or exhibition venue in London is as well equipped or as versatile.

For the AELP National Conference, the main conference room, registration area, accommodation check-in desk, exhibition/catering area and the syndicate rooms are all conveniently located in one part of the venue.


A focus on quality is always a feature of a major AELP conference and this year will take stock on the challenge of delivering good programmes against a background of rising costs and further reform such as the Education Inspection Framework.  Providers have worked hard to improve governance and the National Conference will aim to build on progress.
