This annual LSRN conference will provide participants with
the opportunity to explore and debate the notion of professionalism, including
questions around where, how and whether professionalism exists or is being
eroded or developed (or not) for staff and students in the sector.



The Learning and Skills Research
Network (LSRN) was set up in 1997 and works collaboratively with multiple
partner organisations. It is a network based in the regions of England with links to partners in Scotland, Wales
