The further education sector is faced with many new challenges and opportunities. The current government reforms and technological advances in teaching and learning will consequentially place new demands on the college estate. The AoC Capital and Estates Conference is the key conference in the year for Estates professionals that is focused solely on FE and will cover a range of topical sessions that will leave you armed with information to enhance your estates strategy back in your college.

Planned sessions at the conference will include:

• The college landscape post-area review and impact on estates

• Strategies for rationalisation and re-purposing

• Technological advances and the implications on college estate strategy

• Making best commercial use of your estate

• Devolution and the implications for growth deals and capital funding

• Latest sustainability projects and case studies

• Prevent and the role of estates in implementing the duty

Delegates at last year’s conference said:

“The FE sector never stands still in its thinking and this clearly applies to Estates, as will be demonstrated in the area reviews, the conference is a excellent forum to keep in touch with future developments and initiatives and should be recommended to all estates professionals.”
John Starmer, Director of Estates and Facilities, Birmingham Metropolitan College

“Very useful conference providing relevant and specific information. Very good to be able to network with knowledgeable colleagues from other colleges.”
Mike March, Director of Estates and Services, Wiltshire College

“The event focused on up coming changes in FE that will affect our business and potentially for some: jobs. The area review is happening and for some has happened already and for others it is looming on the horizon; we now have the knowledge and time to prepare Estate data accordingly. The myths about BIM were torn down and explained in a practical way that can be implemented by delegates as a useful tool and reporting method rather than be seen as another dark art.”
Craig Nimmo, Estates Director, Canterbury College
