Spring Data Conference (North)

Spring Data Conference (North)

18 March 2020, 10:00 - 16:00

The Principal York, Station Road, York, YO24 1AA

The Spring Data Conference typically brings together more than 300 ILR funding and data specialists to discuss funding, data quality, and the use of data to run efficient organisations and raise education standards. Running now for ten years, it has established itself as the ‘must attend’ event for ILR specialists from colleges, training providers, local authorities, HEIs and employer providers.

This high profile conference will provide a vital opportunity to hear updates and best practice, as well as share experiences and meet other colleagues working with data in colleges and training providers.

The conference is relevant to 16-18 study programmes, AEB and apprenticeships. So this conference will be of benefit to all providers returning a single ILR.
