This autumn we’re looking at next-level student engagement. Across the sector we’ve seen huge leaps in marketing and media to get student’s attention, and this masterclass will explore new trends that engage student’s minds and get them thinking about their next steps. We’ll hear about the gamification of selection processes, student skill training, and the background checks hitting ever-more students when they apply to corporate programmes.
It’ll be a relaxed, but activity-focused day, with a networking lunch and plenty of coffee breaks for you to catch up with your peers from across the UK and meet new PlaceNet members.
