University of Warwick, 15 October 2010
Bringing together for the first time leading researchers in the field together with policy-makers and practitioners, The Point of Partnership: Understanding Employer Engagement in Education conference will address all aspects of employer engagement in education.
The conference will cover questions such as: What happens when employers work with schools and colleges? Why do young people enjoy and value engaging with employers? What is the link to attainment and motivation? Employability? Career aspiration? What’s in it for the employer? How can relationships be best managed? Are there recruitment savings? How does employee volunteering contribute to staff engagement?
Professor Hugh Lauder (University of Bath), editor of the Journal of Education and Work, will be joined as a keynote speaker by Hans van der Loo, Vice President, European Union Liaison at Shell International, who will speak on talent as a strategic resource, and the urgent need for employers to work with governments, schools, colleges and universities to secure Europe’s future prosperity.
