From 2016 Conference, held at The AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre, University of Sheffield, use these links to access:


Overall, the conference allowed for excellent networking with a very good range of speakers, superb in terms of looking at future technologies and industry developments. The venue and tour of its facilities were appreciated but even more could have been visited during the conference!  The scheduling of presentations will be reconsidered for our next conference to ensure timings run more smoothly during both days and yet allow for further discussions and summary of main points after each speaker. The split venue, despite a bit of traffic at peak times, seemed to work well.

Suggestions for future topics for inclusion as speaker presentations have been noted. We thank delegates for their support and look forward to seeing everyone at seminars and conferences during 2017.

Given the current quickly (and extensively) changing environment, in respect of post-16 education and training, NFEC will be organising one-day conferences for the North and the South as well as the regional seminars in 2017.

We welcome any suggestions that you may have for these events. Please contact Jill on with any suggestions.
