NOCN proud to be supporting the AELP conference 2019
Posted 19 June 2019
As a patron of AELP, NOCN is proud to be supporting the 2019 Annual Conference 24-25 June in London.
The topic for this year’s event is Skills for Better Productivity and Social Mobility, a theme that is integral to the ongoing work of NOCN and its commitment to boosting the UK’s productivity and economic competitiveness.
AELP represents independent learning providers and is committed to working with its members, government and employers to support the development of policies that deliver high quality, learner-centred skills and employability services. The annual conference is vital to driving improvement and best practice within the sector through the sharing of information and contribution to the productivity agenda, all with the aim to drive better skills for the UK’s workforce.
Over the two-day conference, there will be an array of workshops and presentations for delegates to attend, along with a keynote speech from Anne Milton MP, Apprenticeships and Skills Minister.
NOCN’s Director of Apprenticeships, Tom Burton, will be hosting a workshop focussing on the positive impact of apprenticeships. He will shine the spotlight on Level 2 Apprenticeships and the doors they open for learners, not just in the construction sector, but also hospitality, finance, health care, social care, business and customer service. In his workshop, Tom will discuss the national importance of maintaining a pipeline of talent, focussing on the contribution Level 2 Apprenticeships have in providing the fundamental skills learners require to progress to higher levels and upskill in their chosen sector.
NOCN’s subsidiary organisation, One Awards, will also be running a workshop called ‘Maximising Access to Higher Education Opportunities’ delivered by One Awards’ Managing Director Fabienne Bailey and Access to HE Manager John Earland. The workshop will help delegates to understand why colleges and training providers should offer Access to HE Diplomas and how they can benefit learners by maximising opportunities.
