Events for Teachers and Advisers

Here at Birmingham City University, we work closely with teaching, careers and pastoral support staff from across the West Midlands (and beyond) to support students on their journey towards higher education.

Part of this commitment includes the provision of CPD and training opportunities for school and college staff, to increase awareness of higher education issues, share best practice and to support the delivery of relevant and effective advice and guidance. Events include workshops, talks and on-campus visits as well as our annual teachers and advisers conference.

2019 Higher Education Teachers and Advisers Conference

Wednesday 15 May 2019, 9.30am – 3.00pm

Now in it's sixth year, our annual conference is designed to equip teaching, careers and pastoral staff with the latest updates and practical tools to support students with preparation for higher education.

Covering a range of topical issues from teenage sleep to portfolio advice, we encourage delegates to choose from our range of optional sessions to create a tailored programme - guaranteeing that this CPD opportunity is both relevant and interesting to all who attend!
