The Learning Journey: participation and
progression through the ages and stages

The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust is delighted
to announce its fifth national conference for schools,
academies and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).

This conference will examine the partnerships that are essential to ensure
young people’s smooth transition through the learning journey - from
primary schools right through to employment and adult life, via secondary
school, FE and HE. The individual’s learning journey is a single continuum
and not a series of unconnected experiences.

The conference will focus on:

• The importance of cross-sector partnerships in developing cohesive
learning journeys

• The practical aspects of establishing strategic relationships and creating
a spirit of partnership

• The importance of common goals and objectives shared across the
sectors and the need for collaboration

• Helping institutions across sectors to see themselves as part of the
same continuum

• Some of the possibilities for multi- sector partnerships and celebrate
some of the good practice that already exists in this area.

Dates: Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 November 2009
Venue: The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands
Cost: £452 including accommodation and meals

Background information:

Partnership working and student progression/ transition are both highly topical 
agendas. They
are also inextricably linked. Partnerships across sectors can create a much 
more cohesive
learning journey for students, especially around the key transition points, by 
providing insight
into future options and helping to make progression through the ages and key 
stages a natural
flow rather than a series of seemingly unconnected stops and starts.

It is pretty obvious that schools/HE partnerships in particular have become 
ever more important.
Notably within the widening participation agenda they have an increasingly 
crucial role to
play in supporting both social justice and national economic imperatives.

But might we go further than schools and HEIs? Where do other sectors fit in? 
Shouldn’t
partnerships also include FE and the primary sector? What about employers? 
Are we moving
towards multi-sector partnerships that unite institutions right across the many 
stages of the
learner’s journey?

Specialist schools and academies are at the very heart of the partnership 
agenda. They have
a crucial strategic role to play in bringing sectors together. The DCSF’s 21st 
Century Schools
document makes it plain that schools are expected to sit at the hub of their 
communities and
must proactively link to and work alongside partners including HEIs, FE 
colleges, primary
schools and employers.

Confirmed speakers include:

• Professor Nigel Thrift , Vice Chancellor, University of Warwick
• Carl Gilleard, Chief Executive, Association of Graduate Recruiters
• Ann Palmer, Principal, City of London Academy, Islington

Delegate opportunities to:

• network with potential partners
• participate in interactive workshops covering key themes
• gain insight into relevant issues and latest policy
• share good practice and be inspired by existing successful partnerships.
