We are planning our June annual conference on “Devolution and Delivering Public Value in Education” and would like to offer you an opportunity to support our conference and partner with us this year.
Post compulsory education is, and should be, about so much more than simply skills delivery. Further education institutions are ‘anchor’ institutions within communities, providing not just education, learning and skills, but meaningful employment, opportunities for social advancement and contributing to community cohesion.
Investment in further education is not just financial, it is social and societal, contributing to the wider public good. At a time when cost risks being prioritised over value, the 2019 ColegauCymru conference explores the role of further education institutions and their partners in delivering social improvement, economic development, and public value. These challenges are not new but have become increasingly important in recent years. Join us to consider the role of further education in tackling some of the biggest issues facing twenty-first century society, both in Wales and further afield
We plan to pull on examples from across the Four Nations as well as have some international input on the day. The Conference audience will be college leaders, wider education leaders, senior government officials and public policy professionals and there will be ample opportunities to network with education experts and wider influencers from communities around Wales.
Sponsorship and Exhibition opportunities are available, please see our brochure for more details.
