HE Advisers' Conference
Thursday 3 May 2018
The HE Advisers' Conference has been developed for professionals who play a key part in advising students about higher education choices. Whether you're new to the profession or an experienced practitioner, the conference will give you the opportunity to update your knowledge and find out what we have to offer at the University of Portsmouth.
The keynote address will be provided by UCAS. You can also choose from a range of workshops and information sessions allowing you to tailor the day to suit your needs. A range of facility tours will also be taking place, including our new Future Technology Centre.
A two course lunch is provided on the day, giving you the opportunity to network with colleagues and staff from the University of Portsmouth and share best practice.
Discounted parking is available at the nearby Gunwharf Quays shopping outlet and a shuttle bus will be provided on the day. Transport will be available to and from local rail stations and Southampton airport. If you wish to travel the day before the conference, we're offering hotel accommodation and an evening meal on the Wednesday.
Find out more and book your place by Friday 20 April 2018.
Subject Specific Teacher CPD
Using the expertise of our colleagues in academic departments across the University, we have put together a number of teacher CPD events for subject specific teachers.
In the past we have run events in Physics, English and Computing, with the most recent events linked to Cosmology and Modern Foreign Languages and a Drama workshop delivered in conjunction with the Fluid Motion Theatre Company and the RSC.
Please let us know if there are specific CPD requirements for your school that you think we can help with.
Public lectures and events
The University hosts a number of public lectures and events throughout the year that teachers are welcome to attend to enhance your subject knowledge or even bring a group of students. For more information visit the University of Portsmouth events.
Supporting your events in school or college
Our team are also available to attend other events in your schools. These include, but are not restricted to, Parents Events and Careers/Options Evenings.
