Shaping the future of adult skills and learning — the implications of Brexit and devolution for the West Midlands

The Workers’ Educational Association WM (WEA WM) is holding a conference on the 4th July 2018 on the topic “Shaping the future of adult skills and learning — the implications of Brexit and devolution for the West Midlands”.

It is keen to promote this conference opportunity as widely as possible to charities, social enterprises and third sector organisations in the West Midlands that are involved in employability programmes and vocational skills training for adults furthest away from the labour market.

The event is FREE and includes a light lunch.

It takes place Wed 4th July 2018 from 10:00am until 4:00pm at Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, 75 Harborne Rd, Birmingham B15 3DH.

Expert speakers include Jo Cain, Director of Education, WEA; John Hacking, Network for Europe; Dr Sue Pember, HOLEX; Mark Rowe, TUC.

This is an exceptional opportunity to get up to speed about a fast-changing environment, become more aware of the implications of Brexit and devolution on adult education and community learning, and explore ways in which practitioners can work more closely together on responding to these issues.

FULL DETAILS & REGISTRATION — registration by 1st July will be helpful for planning purposes.

The event is supported by GMB trade union.
