Our first policy update of the new membership year is on Friday, 7th October 2022 at 12noon. Join the UVAC team for a run down of all the policy and practice issues now affecting higher technical education and skills including apprenticeships. We have a new P.M., a new Secretary of State for Education (the fourth to fill the role this year alone) and possibly new Ministers of skills so this is the time to restate and keep on stating our position on the role of universities in skills and work-based training. Registration can be made HERE. We are being joined by RCU Analytics who will be demonstrating the type of work they are doing with universities including benchmark data for skill programmes to assist with planning, developing and diversifying provision. RCU have recently joined UVAC as a corporate supporter and will be exhibiting at this years UVAC national conference.
