With so much happening in our policy environment, the AoC Spring Conference comes at a great time to take stock, hear from our policy groups on their work and from officials and key national speakers.

Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss the Commission on the College of the Future and on AoC’s spending review plans and submission. We will consider longer-term DfE thinking and address how we can support leaders and their mental well-being with leadership and governance development.

We are offering one free place to every member in order to encourage a strong turnout from college leaders. Additional members of the Senior Leadership Team can attend for a reduced fee.

Benefits of attending:

  • Examine the latest policy updates and discuss the impact on college planning
  • Hear first-hand the developments of the Commission of the College of the Future
  • Take advantage of the time and space to network with colleagues from around the country, dealing with the same challenges, in a welcoming and inclusive environment
