Reimaginefe Conference

2 July, 2019 at Birmingham City University ***Sponsored Free Places Available. See FAQ at bottom of this listing*** We are very pleased to announce our 4th Reimagining Further Education conference with the theme #FESpeaks. Join us for a thought-provoking day and opportunity to reimagine FE policy and practice. At #ReimagineFE, we are subverting what ‘centre stage’ means. Our focus is not on the people at the front, but the people in the seats: educators, leaders, and researchers. This year, our speakers will be not ‘keynotes’ but provocateurs, and when they stop speaking, the real work begins—and that’s all down to you. Working groups are the collaborative spaces where we are tasked with re-thinking our approach to key challenges facing particular areas of the broader FE provision.

These dynamic groups ask hard questions and innovate with new visions and approaches. When booking tickets, you will choose a single Working Group with whom you will remain for both the morning AND afternoon sessions. While we appreciate that you may be interested in more than one group, this format allows delegates to develop a solid partnership capable of identifying barriers and devising approaches to overcome them, both in their own practice as well as when engaging policy makers. Coffee/tea on arrival, lunch and afternoon coffee/tea are included in the ticket price. A list of the Working Groups and their convenors appears below; more detailed information on the topics to be discussed in each group can be found at our website: https://reimaginefe.wordpress.com/working-groups-for-reimaginefe19/ GCSE Maths and English resits: Reimagining pedagogy and assessment Convened by: Elizabeth Draper, Director of English, and Danny Rimmer, Teaching and Learning Manager, both at Warrington & Vale Royal College; and Michael Smith, Learning Innovation Manager, Barking and Dagenham College ‘Quality’ in FE: from Fear to Faith Convened by: Gavin Knox, Professional Standards Learning Coach; Sally Reeve, Teaching & Learning Manager; and Simon Justice, Professional Standards Learning Coach.

There are a limited number of free places available to any practitioner in the broad FE sector whose employing organisations will not fund them to attend the conference. Please send a brief email to Suzanne Savage ([email protected]) explaining your position, the Working Group you are interested in, and what you hope to gain from attending the conference. Note that these places are for the ticket cost only (including refreshments and lunch) but you are responsible for the costs of travel. Is there parking? Public parking is available at Millennium Point car park (postcode B4 7AP) which is across the street from the conference venue. Parking is charged by the hour and is £6.00 for 12 hours. How can I contact the organiser with any questions? Please email Suzanne Savage [email protected] How do I sign up for more than one Working Group? Unlike other conferences where you may attend several different sessions, #ReimagineFE19 is built around the idea of Working Groups which stay together for both the morning and afternoon sessions.
While this does limit the amount of topics you can participate in, this format facilitates stronger group cohesion and greater depth of dialogue to reimagine key areas of further education.
