Event details

Colleagues are warmly invited to the Nottingham Trent University BTEC Symposium, organised by the Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching BTEC Champions Group, to be held on Thursday 14th September 2017, 9.15am - 3.30pm at the City Campus.

This BTEC Symposium will provide an opportunity to share practical activities and resources focused on scaffolding the achievement of BTEC students. As a relatively new area of study for many universities, we hope that this initial informal meeting will offer an opportunity for networking with colleagues with a shared interest, and provide a springboard for future projects.
