• Public scepticism,
• accreditation, regulation and range of governmental initiatives and policies,
• International and cross border working,
• e-proctoring,
• apprenticeships and EPA's,
• open badges,
• social media, and the expectations of digital natives
• growth of e-portfolios,
• proliferation of question types
• the expectations of digital natives and rapid changes in technology.

Bookings may be made for either day or both days of the event, with a discount for Charities, Schools, Colleges, Universities and those in the public sector.
