New this Autumn
Apprenticeships delivery, assessment and quality assurance
Hilary is running one-day events in the Autumn looking at the changes to practice for those involved in delivering and assessing new apprenticeships. The event will also focus on the role of the internal quality assurer (IQA) and what this looks like. These are smaller, friendly events aimed at practitioners and their trainers. You’ll be able to discuss any questions or challenges in an informal environment with others facing similar issues. Dates are:
Portsmouth, October 22nd
Huddersfield, October 24th
Central Birmingham, November 6th
Birmingham (off the M6) 6th February, 2019

” I had the pleasure of listening to Hilary deliver and outstanding presentation on end-point assessment at the recent ‘Are you ready for The Apprenticeships Levy?’ conference. She used slides that gave us a close look at what the future will be for practitioners in this area. Comments from colleagues confirmed that they too found this a most interesting presentation from the ground. I would certainly recommend using Hilary for training staff and for explaining what practice should look like for all of us involved in the delivery and assessment of apprenticeships.”

Embracing change conference
Hilary and Ann recently organised a national conference on embracing change within the FE and Skills sector. The conference included key speakers, workshops and exhibitors. All attendees received a copy of Hilary and Ann’s book: The best vocational trainer’s guide.
Topics for discussion included:
Apprenticeships, Functional Skills, Technology, Technical Qualifications (T-levels), British Values, Prevent Duty, Professional Standards – and how these impact upon the role of the FE and skills’ practitioner.
“This was a brilliant event and I appreciated the informality and the opportunity to meet others in the same profession and to reinforce that feeling that you are not working in isolation. The way the talks were organised was really informative and answered what I suspect most of the people in the room were wondering about concerning the future and uncertainty within our sector.”
