UVAC’s 2018 National Conference is the annual event for those engaged in Degree Apprenticeships, skills and work-based learning. Our conference will provide an opportunity for you to reflect on policy and government requirements, showcase and explore developed partnerships and demonstrate the range of outstanding and effective approaches (including in research) to successful outcomes in technical, vocational and professional education and training.
As part of the conference programme UVAC is inviting proposals from Higher Education Institutions and partner organisations to set out a proposal to deliver sessions on one or more of the following themes:
- Marketing and selling skills solutions and apprenticeships to employers
- Innovation in delivery of teaching, learning and assessment
- Partnerships with other HEIs, further education colleges and independent training providers
- Delivering volumes in apprenticeships
- On-line and distance learning
- Apprenticeship pedagogy
- Outreach, social mobility and progression
- Joint approaches to apprentice recruitment with employers and others
- Mission Group approaches to supporting student achievement and progression in technical and vocational education
Sessions should last no more than 35 minutesand will be scheduled for either the morning or afternoon. We are aiming to run 4 break-out sessions during the day, which is a break from tradition, as we know there is much to share and discuss.
We would encourage all presenters to allow for discussion and aim to make sessions as interactive as possible.
Proposals will be peer reviewed.
Those invited to run a session will also be encouraged to develop a paper for UVAC’s peer reviewed academic journal Higher Education, Skills and Work-based Learning.
Proposals should include:
- A title (max 30 words)
- Detail of the Theme(s) covered
- A summary of the session (max 300 words)
- Format type
