National Teachers and Advisers Conference

The 2019 National Teachers and Advisers Conference (NTAC) will take place on Wednesday, 8th May 2019 from 9.30am to 3.30pm at The University of Manchester.

In light of unprecedented changes within the HE sector, this one-day event will explore key developments in the policy landscape and their impact.

The conference will equip teachers and advisers with information and advice to prepare students for entry to higher education and will address the key topics of: offer making, admissions, student finance, graduate employability and best practice in the provision of information, advice and guidance (IAG) in schools and colleges.

There is no cost to attend this conference and delegates will have the opportunity to attend workshops and discussion panels that will enable them to ask questions and receive information first hand from the experts.
