Overview

AOSEC is delighted to introduce this brand new network which will offer a platform for colleagues to share practical ideas and strategies that they successfully use. It will also allow delegates to share their concerns and challenges through workshop based discussion and networking.

Through round table discussion, delegates will have the opportunity to highlight any key challenges and concerns they are currently facing and share current activity taking place in their college that supports work experience.

The network will include a range of presentations from colleges who are undertaking innovative work and invited external speakers.

Group discussion will play a key part of this network.
