In light of recent discussions around the value of degrees and more and more students not feeling that they are getting value for money from their institution, are you doing the best you can? We would like to invite you to learn, source and network at the Higher & Further Education Show to make sure you are prepared.
The Higher & Further Education Show is the only conference and exhibition to bring together colleges and universities to explore their evolving experiences, discuss changing policies, develop new solutions and forge strategic partnerships.
The event takes place on 14 October at ExCel in London and is supported by leading organisations such as Universities UK, University Alliance, QAA, The Higher Education Academy, NUS and others – the event promises to be the biggest yet. University Business is media partner of the event and we are delighted to give you a sneak preview of what you can expect at this not-to-be-missed show.
In the extensive and high-quality conference programme you can dive into topics around efficiency, value for money, funding, competitiveness, understanding the new teaching excellence framework, student engagement, ICT infrastructure and much more. Listen to key industry figures such as Professor Sir Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor and Chair, University of Aberdeen and Universities UK Group on Efficiency and his findings in the second Diamond review around ‘Efficiency, Effectiveness and Value for Money’ or find out about ‘Higher Education’s Role in the New Government’s Productivity Plan’ with Stephen Jones, Deputy Director Strategy and Policy for Higher Education at Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Maddalaine Ansell, Chief Executive, University Alliance, will explain ‘The Evolving Entrepreneurial Role of Universities’, and take some note from Sorana Vieru, Vice President for Higher Education, National Union of Students, on ‘Shaping the Quality of Higher Education Together with Students’. There is so much to learn in just one day, our advice is to bring along at least one colleague to cover all topics. The day will be packed with over 45 sessions.
And there is more: around 100 exhibitors are waiting to discuss your challenges and provide you with solutions, better deals for money or simply an opportunity to benchmark your current solutions. Services range from Energy, Estates, Security and Facilities Management, over ICT, Office Equipment to Recruitment, Careers and Professional Services as well as Travel and Transport Services.
