Virtual International Conference on Employer Engagement: Preparing Young People for the Future
1 & 2 July 2021
This virtual conference will be hosted by Education and Employers in partnership with the Edge Foundation. Now in its sixth year, the International Conference on Employer Engagement has been attended widely with high quality papers from across the globe.
