Announcing our Welcome Address and Opening Keynote Speaker

Alicia Moyles

Careers Expert and Educationalist

We are thrilled to have Alicia Moyles delivering the opening keynote session. Alicia brings with her a wealth of knowledge and inspiration from over 20 years working within education, from careers guidance to her work with the British Association of Supported Employment. Her career has spanned the private, charity and public sectors. We know you will find this session both informative and thought provoking.

What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

Supporting Children's Aspirations Through Their Education Journey.

We all remember being asked that key question "What do you want to be when you grow up?", we have probably also asked the same question of ourselves! Do you remember your answers? Where are you now? Are you doing that job/career that you dreamt about during your childhood and into your youth? For some people the dream is to be able to have a job/career, which has perhaps seemed unachievable during their younger years.

The session will investigate how young people can be supported, despite any presented barriers, and we'll explore ways to engage our students and young people to value themselves as well as valuing their futures.

Year on year our delegate numbers have been rising, and with feedback like this, you don't want to miss out!

"Keynotes and Workshops were really informative and well presented."

"Found it very useful, particularly in terms of meeting new suppliers for things we needed around the school including a new library programme."

"Lots of good advice and information received from the presentations, new links made with new organisations and catch up with existing providers."

"I didn’t know what to expect, as it was my first time, but found it was set up really well. Spoke to many suppliers, they all were very helpful. Coffee stations and lunch was good."
