Further education colleges play a key role in business and management education. FE delivers franchised degree courses and gives many students and businesses their first steps into business management and professional education – together we are critical to growth locally, nationally and internationally. This is a very exciting, but challenging, time, with new revenue streams and new expectations for business engagement.
Many business school students and postgraduates start their business and management education in FE and that reciprocal arrangement is set to grow. Staff benefit from closer academic and teaching resources tie-ups and new online and blended learning provide opportunities previously not available.
11% of HE is delivered in FE and a significant element is business and management education. Policy is set to make it grow. This conference is for college principals, associate deans, deans of business schools, heads of business and management, education departments teaching across accountancy, law, business studies, marketing and other management and professional disciplines and business school managers dealing with franchising, recruitment and business engagement, plus interested professional and qualifications bodies working across both FE and HE.
This event is streamed and available on demand to extend the value and understanding of these challenges.
