The draft programme for the London event on 13 February at Woburn House (UUK’s headquarters) is now available starting with a ‘big picture’ presentation by Vincenzo Raimo (PVC at Reading and Chair of the UCAS International Advisory Group), followed by a Home Office update session (‘The Bill and the Brexit’) and then an opportunity for discussion and responses led by UKCISA Board members.
In the afternoon the day will focus on good practice with numbers of examples, delegates will hear from a student panel and see what ideas and recommendations we can develop together for the coming year.
So do come and join in and share your views and opinions. We have set the fee at just £50 per person (to cover venue costs and lunch) to enable as many as possible from both HE and FE to attend - but we would advise colleagues to register as soon as possible as places will be limited.
