Teachers and Careers Advisers Conference

7th May 2010 - 12:00am

Edge Hill University

The Changing Landscape of Higher Education – Quality, Choice and Aspiration

Examining the economic value of a degree in light of today’s graduate employment rates is one of a number of topical issues under the spotlight at a special event.

The Changing Landscape of Higher Education – Quality, Choice and Aspiration is the theme of this year’s Teachers and Careers Advisers Conference being run by Edge Hill University as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

The one-day event on Friday 7th May is primarily aimed at teachers and careers advisers working in post-16 education and gives the most up-to-date, essential news on Higher Education and the new Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) Standards.

It will cover student finance provision, applying the government’s new IAG standards and interactive workshops. A student panel session will give delegates an opportunity to put questions to current students on issues such as student life, applying to higher education, finance and preparing for life after university.

This is the third year the conference has been running for and last year’s delegates found it very useful, commenting:

  • “An interesting insight into issues facing students, advisers and teaching staff on current developments.”
  • “Fantastic professional development and networking opportunity.”
  • “The event was well run and a useful opportunity to acquire relevant and useful information and to make the most of networking opportunities.”
  • “Excellent. I’m new to Post 16 and the conference gave me lots of relevant information and allowed me to speak to others, to gain advice.”
