This virtual conference is offered for teachers and other school staff involved in supporting university applications and aspirations at state sector schools and colleges from anywhere in the UK. The virtual conference is not open to prospective students.

Instead of a full day event, this year’s virtual conference has been split over three evenings (4-6pm). All delegates will receive joining links for all sessions, as well as access to recordings after the event. All sessions will be hosted using Zoom webinar technology. It is hoped that these arrangements will make the virtual conference as accessible as possible to teachers and school staff.

A provisional programme for the virtual conference is outlined below. A full, confirmed programme with all speakers will be uploaded in due course.
