Delivering education | Variety and Choice

This year we will be welcoming around 300 delegates to participate in an exciting day.

We are certain that the conference will be a great success with an even bigger and better event this year.  It all adds up to more variety, more choice and more change. 

The Conference will seek to explore both the challenges and opportunities that social, political and technology influences are bringing to the world of education, and the role that tutors have to play within this changing world.

The Conference will consist of a blend of keynote speakers and presentations  around the key themes  as well as practical workshops around the areas of creating and growing a successful tutoring practice; marketing tips; a Q&A panel of experienced tutors, and more. 

There will be plenty of opportunities for members to meet and talk with one another through the day  day, particularly during this year's addition, an evening Drinks Reception**.


A small selection of exhibitors - some of whom are proudly sponsoring the event -  will provide a wealth of information, services and materials of direct use to tutors, based on last year’s experience.
