HEAT Conference

170D5398[1]We offer teachers and advisers the opportunity to explore Higher Education with colleagues across the Region. Our annual Higher Education Advisers’ and Teachers’ (HEAT) Conference gives staff from schools, colleges and universities a forum to discuss policy changes, curriculum development and progression to Higher Education. This interactive conference provides the opportunity to hear from keynote speakers and attend practical workshops that will equip teachers and advisers to better support young people.

We are delighted to announce that the next HEAT Conference will be held on Thursday 3 November 2016 at the Great North Museum. The theme of this years event will be ‘Supporting Progression to Higher Education’, during which we will warmly welcome Ben Jordan, Senior Policy Executive, to speak about Progression Pathways. Following some fantastic feedback, we will continue to provide an opportunity to attend a variety of excellent workshops to support applications and speak with admissions tutors from universities across the North East.
