ASET Annual Conference

The ASET Annual Conference brings together members of the ASET community to discuss and disseminate good practice in the field of work based and placement learning. With keynote speakers, parallel sessions and networking opportunities this two day event offers delegates the chance to immerse themselves in WBPL, sharing and learning with fellow practitioners, academics and eminent figures from across the sector.

Thank you to everyone who was involved in organising and delivering this year’s conference. It was great to meet so many others working in the same area and share ideas. The conference itself was interesting, varied and thought-provoking with a great range of speakers and keynotes. I really enjoyed it and the setting was stunning!
