The FETN Annual Conference provides a unique opportunity for managers and practitioners across the sector to discuss a range of topics, hear about the latest developments in tutorial provision and share ideas in the pursuit of excellence.

As with many other national activities, the impact of COVID-19 has encouraged us to look at how we can bring this highly valued event to you in a safe and worthwhile manner. To this end we are inviting you to join me, network with colleagues and sector experts in our first Live Virtual Annual Conference.

You will have the same number of workshops to choose from as in previous years and will receive a recording of all the workshops and keynote presentations. The presentations offer a range of themes pertinent to the new Education Inspection Framework, and improvement of tutorial, support and learner development in Further Education, Higher Education and Work Based Learning.

We are delighted to announce that Toby Perkins, MP for Chesterfield  will share his perspective as Shadow Minister for Apprenticeships & Lifelong Learning on the challenges of COVID-19 for the Further Education Sector and how best to move forward. 

‘Challenges of COVID-19 Recovery for Tutorial Provision’ presented by Beej Kaczmarczyk, Director of eMemoir & the White Rose College of Beauty, and highly respected trainer & consultant. In this presentation we will consider the impact of COVID-19 on the Sector and how those responsible for tutorial provision can respond to the challenges it brings.

Quality Assurance and Improvement of Tutorial Provision in the New Inspection Environment, presented by Ryhs Davies. Rhys is a highly experienced senior manager, consultant and trainer in the Further Education and Skills Sector and has extensive inspection experience. Rhys will explore how effective tutorial provision can support the wider development of the learner and how tutors can improve their own practice so as to cover the emphases of current approaches to quality assurance.
