New Practitioners’ Conference

The next New Practitioners’ Conference will take place between Thursday 30th May – Friday 31st May 2019 at The Met Hotel in Leeds. The HELOA New Practitioners’ Conference will provide a high-quality national training opportunity, allowing participants at the beginning of their career in schools liaison to share best practice and to build networks with other Higher Education professionals from across the sector whilst exploring and discussing topics that currently affect the sector. The programme covers a range of issues in Higher Education common to a variety of roles, and is aimed at staff in their first 6 months of outreach, schools liaison, widening participation or access, student recruitment and marketing posts, including graduate interns. The residential nature of this event will allow participants to get to know other HELOA colleagues and create cross-institutional links.
