EPC Recruitment and Admissions Forum 2018

EPC Recruitment and Admissions Forum 2018: What works?

Join us for the 2018 Recruitment and Admissions Forum at Sheffield Hallam University on 14th November 2018.

Register now to secure your place at what promises to be our best Forum to date. We bring you a new format, new insight, and evidence-based accounts of “What works” for you to take back to your university with you.

WHAT'S ON OFFER?

Hear from the new regulator as Sarah Howls of the Office for Students joins us to discuss “What works?”. Plus, UCAS Director, Helen Thorne MBE, will give us unprecedented insight into what works in engineering admissions through an evidenced-based reflection on some of the engineering data exclusively held by UCAS. Other speakers include Susan Scurlock (Primary Engineer), Kathryn Jones (The Honest Marketer), Dr Geoff Parks (University of Cambridge, Professor Mike Bramhall (Sheffield Hallam University) and Stella Fowler (EPC).

The event will focus on four key strands of admissions: attraction, recruitment, admission and retention. Following your feedback, each theme of the 2018 event will involve both presentations and workshops, allowing plenty of time for discussion and sharing best practice. Plus, for the first time this year, we are pleased to announce a lunchtime poster session, where information on current and upcoming exciting work across each of these strands will be showcased. It is now too late to submit a poster presentation, but if you would like to discuss other ways to get involved, please email the EPC Executive.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

All staff involved in recruitment and admissions in any engineering discipline – from early career staff through lecturers and researchers to department heads, deans of faculties, PVCs and VCs – anyone with an interest in recruitment and admissions who wishes to network with colleagues, develop their professional practice and stay on top of best practice.

The event is also open to non-academics working in engineering or in professional bodies, who have an interest in the talent pipeline.

Please note: the EPC is dedicated to supporting early careers staff and so we are offering heavily discounted delegate tickets to individuals who have been working in engineering in UK universities for less than five years.

Are you an early career staff?  Why should you attend?

Aside from covering contemporary research and admissions topics through the hand-picked line up of  speakers and  the excellent networking opportunities this is a chance for you to directly interact with your engineering academic peers. Each presentation/talk will be followed by discussion of the topics in smaller groups meaning that you will actively discuss the current topic with your peers. We will capture the essence of the discussions using Padlet and Twitter to encourage the discussions to continue after the individual sessions end.
