The impact of Brexit on the HE market, the repercussions of the apprenticeship levy and the use of technology to drive employability within universities were three of the key issues tackled at the annual AGCAS conference, with Abintegro joining the lively discussions to help develop solutions to some of the biggest challenges in HE.
The annual AGCAS conference, this year held in Chester, is the biggest careers conference in the Higher Education sector and is run by the industry association AGCAS, to share knowledge, discuss the latest trends and debate issues with careers professionals from across the UK and abroad.
Abintegro has always been an active supporter of AGCAS, exhibiting for the 7th consecutive year this year in Chester.
‘Most universities now place employability at the heart of their proposition, and the annual AGCAS conference is a fantastic opportunity to view first-hand the innovation and initiatives devised to deliver on this pledge’ commented Abintegro Commercial Director David Heard.
