* Higher Education in FE: Drivers of change
Shame this conference is in London and shame it costs an arm and a leg to attend, but I thought it worth flagging up as it promises to addresses some key issues and it’s handy to know these are getting attention. 
I am hoping to be sent a summary of discussions and will pass on anything that looks like new.   [it’s on 17th Feb and here’s the web site for further information]
