Business thinking for future FE success
Colleges are increasingly having to become more business-minded to achieve growth and seize new opportunities in a challenging market. So how can colleges adapt to capitalise on new commercial opportunities whilst continuing to perform to high-standards in their current roles? This year's conference will explore some of the key drivers for why colleges need to start thinking and acting more like a commercial business:
- Apprenticeship levy and employer engagement
- Diversified revenue streams
- Greater competition
- The emergence of college groups and a reduction in smaller colleges
- Recruitment and retention of students
Business thinking for future FE success will provide a fresh opportunity for you to discuss new requirements in the FE landscape with sector experts, colleagues and peers. The programme will feature an exciting mix of keynote speeches, panel discussions and workshops, and promises to be a thought-provoking and insightful couple of days!
