Event details
Event name:SFCA Summer Conference 2021
Date:16th Jun 2021
End date:17th Jun 2021
Venue:De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre & Orchard Hotel, Beeston Lane, Nottingham, NG7 2RJ

This is the sector’s premier annual event, at which key figures in education will share their insights; exceptional practitioners will showcase their initiatives; the collective bargaining position will be established; the annual awards will be made; and extensive opportunities for professional and social networking will be enjoyed.

It is critically important that the sector shows itself as a powerful and engaged force to be reckoned with, and the conference is a significant opportunity for the sector to show itself at its best and to lay the foundations for the coming year.  Increasingly colleges are sending a full team – to stimulate debate, and engender greater sustainable learning and impact. Indeed, in order to encourage this, we are proposing a 30% reduction in conference fees for the third, and any further, delegate from your college.

Annual Awards Dinner

The SFCA Annual Awards provide a platform to identify, celebrate and reward outstanding practice by colleges and individuals across the sector.

Nominations will be open in 2021.
