SEEC’s event programme is organised in direct response to topical issues in credit-related learning. Through seminars and workshops, we aim to focus on practice and policy implications, offer an independent perspective, provide excellent networking opportunities and facilitate the sharing of best practice. Delegates at recent events have valued the experience:
- ‘Very relevant content, thought provoking and a great combination of speakers. Highly valuable and inspiring event that I would recommend to others.’
- ‘The day provided up to date material and insight into different aspects of credit.’
- ‘A helpful opportunity to find out about how credit is being used to support the delivery of flexible learning, and to make higher education more accessible to non-traditional students.’
Our events are aimed at academic and other staff from HEIs, FE and HE colleges, professional bodies, businesses, and agencies involved with learning, teaching and administering in a higher education context. SEEC and NUCCAT members benefit from discounts of up to 50% on registration fees, providing excellent value for key professional development.
