Protocol | Excellence in FE

Protocol Events

Further Education Conferences

 

Protocol's Improve service provides support to educational organisations in a variety of ways, including outstanding training, consultancy services and products. In addition, we deliver highly successful and very well received educational events across a variety of current topics that are tailored specifically for the FE sector.

 

All of our events are delivered by talented and experienced educational experts who showcase the most current topics that grip the sector, giving delegates a chance to update their knowledge and skills. Our training events offer excellent opportunities for delegates to share best practice, contribute to debate and to network with industry experts and fellow delegates.

 

In addition to gaining new skills, a key benefit of attending Improve events is the opportunity to attend our exclusive "Ask the Inspector" lunchtime session, where you can ask our practising inspectors questions about the pressing issues in your organisation. You will also have the opportunity to test our teaching and learning products in our "Try before you buy" session.


As a result of diminishing budgets across the sector and with an aim to enable staff to continue with their CPD, we have developed a range of discounts for you to benefit from throughout the new academic year.

All of our national event programmes can be delivered as in-house training. If you need to cater for a group of staff we can cater for up to 60 delegates and our fees start from as little as £24 per person!

 

Certificates of attendance can be provided as evidence of continuing professional development.

 

What do our delegates say?

“I found the session incredibly useful and informative. Deborah's knowledge and experience enhanced the quality of the programme immensely and I loved it! I found myself totally gripped from the onset and hung on her every word! The tools we used on the day are already embedded within my practice and I am spreading the word to my colleagues in order to share best practice and raise awareness.

 

The session was well worth the train ride - brilliant!”

With the resources of a large national organisation behind us, we provide incomparable value for money. Once our fee is agreed, we work tirelessly to increase your profits, and there are no hidden costs - we never add any mark-up to goods or services.

 

“Protocol has worked with the Women's Leadership Network for 4 years on our annual conference; the fact that we continue to go back to Protocol for its support year after year speaks volumes for the Network's confidence in the organisation.

 

The services they provide for us range from identifying and assessing venues to designing and producing promotional materials to finding sponsors to managing the event on the ground - and everything in between. They are relentlessly efficient, but what makes Protocol distinctive in its service for us is the personal attention and responsiveness. They listen carefully to our requirements, however demanding or unusual, and always manage to tailor the service perfectly to our needs.

 

We know we can rely on Protocol to deliver and to take the strain, leaving our own staff free to concentrate on the content and quality of the event. We consider them excellent value for money."
