The annual SET Conference is an award-winning event which is aimed at supporting teachers, trainers and leaders in the Further Education and Training sector.
The event, which takes place at the beginning of November, features high-profile keynote speakers and practical breakout sessions, with opportunities to share ideas and best practice.
Themes covered on the day include: English, maths, SEND, T Levels, EdTech, leadership, diversity and inclusion, health and wellbeing, professional development, and learner motivations.
This year’s conference will be held on 2 November as a fully digital event. The conference will feature a range of speakers and themes relevant to your role and interests.
Join us for breakout and keynote speaker sessions, take part in polls, quizzes and challenges on the day, and connect with other delegates from the sector.
Delegates will benefit from live Q&As and interactive breakout sessions throughout the day, all accessed from the comfort of your home or workplace. All sessions will be available to view on demand post-event.Register to attend SET Conference 2021

There was a lot of work behind the scenes to put on an event like that, so congrats to the team who were involved. I must also say that Sarah Simons was just fabulous!"
