Valuing Enrichment Webinar

Venue: Online via Zoom

Date: 10 June 2024

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Fee: Free to attend

Enrichment activities have a unique role in empowering young people with the skills, confidence, self-esteem and awareness they need to be lifelong learners and engaged citizens. Yet colleges’ ability to offer enrichment has been eroded by more than a decade of funding cuts. Together with the University of Derby, and funded by NCFE, the Valuing Enrichment Report has demonstrated, through research, the huge role enrichment activities play in preparing students for employment and careers.

Join us for an insightful roundtable discussion on the value of enrichment, aligned with the vision of fostering lifelong learning where every individual can thrive.
