Teachers and Careers Advisers’ Conference

Get advice on the recent changes to higher education and find out ways to improve teaching and learning in the classroom at our Teachers and Careers Advisers’ conference.

Our free one-day conference is a day focused on improving teaching and learning and will provide information and advice on classroom techniques, issues relating to Higher Education and new developments at Cardiff University, catering for:

  • Head of 6th forms
  • Head of departments
  • all secondary teachers
  • careers advisers
  • those responsible for professional development.

Our last Conference was held on Friday 30 June. We had expert guest speakers from across the education sector providing advice and guidance on a range of key topics.

Mike Hughes (author of The Magenta Principles) led a session on encouraging independent learning and effective learning strategies; Matthew Welbourn, representative from UCAS; Cardiff University Medicine School, gave an Insider's Guide to our Multiple Mini Interviews.

There was a choice of the following workshops:

  • SACU: The easy way to get students researching their future options
  • a Cardiff University guide to writing personal statements and references
  • Student Finance changes
  • raising aspirations, fulfilling potential: the support available at Cardiff University.

Delegates were also invited to attend our interactive academic School Tours - providing an excellent opportunity to learn more about the courses available and try something new. In addition, academics and Heads of a number of academic Schools, including the School of Welsh, the School of English, Communication and Philosophy and the School of Medicine will join us for a lunch time session giving opportunity for informal discussion and to learn more about the application process to a Russell Group university.
