Mindful Education at the AoC Annual Conference

Mindful Education is delighted to be sponsoring the AoC Annual Conference for the second year running.

The Association of Colleges (AoC) Annual Conference is Further Education’s flagship event, bringing together senior managers from across the sector. With a packed line up of speakers, breakout sessions and exhibitors, we’re looking forward to an inspirational couple of days at the ICC in Birmingham.

This year’s conference is Mindful Education’s biggest event to date, and we have a new conference stand – which you can see under construction in the photo above. We are also unveiling a new brand and logo and a new website. Our marketing, creative and production teams have worked closely with expert stand designers Alchemy Expo to bring our eye-catching designs to life. We are also very excited to feature in the ITN ‘Learning for Life’ Premiere on Monday night.

Mindful’s Founder and Managing Director, Mark Mckenna, will also be hosting a breakout session, looking at how the requirement for 20% off-the-job training for apprentices can be effectively met by blended learning. He will be joined by Karen Spencer, Principal and CEO at Harlow College, who will be discussing how blended learning has benefited employers and apprentices on their finance programme.

The AoC Annual Conference is running on Monday 19 – Wednesday 21 November at the International Conference Centre in Birmingham. You can find Mindful Education’s stand in Hall 3, Stand 66. Mark’s breakout session is running on Tuesday 20 November at 11.30am.
