Organised by the charity Education and Employers and the UCL Institute of Education, Centre of Post 14 Education and Work, this half-day event sets out to provide participants with the opportunity to explore effective ways of supporting young people to make successful transitions from schools and colleges in to work or further education. This special half-day symposium follows two successful collaborative seminars organised by Education and Employers and UCL Institute of Education in 2017.
Hosted at UCL Institute of Education, the symposium takes place on the 18th April 2018 between 09:30 – 13:30. A buffet lunch will be provided.
Dr Lynne Rogers, a Co-Director of the Centre for Education and Work, will Chair the event and the confirmed key note address will be from Olly Newton, the Director of Policy and Research at the Edge Foundation. The first half of the morning will provide participants with the opportunity to hear from experts about effective ways of supporting young people in their transition from schools and colleges to the future.
This is followed by two practical workshops focusing on the same topic: Workshop one – Julie Surridge, Schools Liaison Manager, Havering College of Further and Higher Education. Workshop two – Jake Armstrong, Work Related Learning and Pathways Lead, Addey and Stanhope School. The full programme will be announced shortly.
This half-day conference will be of particular interest to CEIAG leaders and practitioners, leaders and practitioners from 14-19 providers, key stakeholders in 14-19 education, policy makers in this field plus researchers.
