researchED FE & Vocational

3rd December 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Welcome to the first ever researchED conference dedicated to the Further Education sector and vocational training. Come along and hear some of the UK’s top speakers discuss what the best evidence and research can tell us about teaching, training, and everything to do with the field. From policy to practice, you’ll be able to choose from a range of strands throughout the day in order to build the conference that suits you and your needs- as well as having the opportunity to join in live debates with our friends from the UKFEchat community.

Education is one of the most rewarding paths to follow, and for many of our students its their best chance to reach and realise their life goals. Which is why it’s so important we use the best evidence we can find to drive what we do.
