The next generation of leaders will play a crucial role in defining goals and steering a course to help drive the direction of the FE sector. At the conference you will hear how inspiring college Principals have developed business plans and built the strategies to achieve and lead them.

There will be in-depth sessions giving you the chance to understand areas of the business outside of your own remit, including finance, curriculum planning and governance. Sessions will range from a discussion around the college brand and the customer, to developing your own personal brand and tips to approaching a Principal-ship recruitment panel.

The event will enable you to create an in-depth holistic picture of the college business and is aimed at Vice Principals looking to further develop their career.

The event will combine high-level talks to inspire you to take action and offer you great opportunities to establish new contacts and catch up with existing contacts.
